Gongs all around at Cork festival
The prestigious, imperishable 54th Corona Cork Film Festival wound down last weekend with the announcement of the winners of the Short Film Awards. The prize for best short went to Elephant Skin from Austria.
The best Irish film gong was awarded to Claire Dix for the amusing Free Chips Forever! The Claire Lynch Award for best first-time Irish director went to Mark Noonan for Questions. The best international short was the animated Muto from Italy. Mike Hannon’s appropriately titled My Beamish Boy walked off with the Made in Cork Award.
