Fes­ti­val, crit­ics give out gongs

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Jame­son Dublin In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val ended last Sun­day with a screen­ing of François Ozon’s com­edy Potiche. When the de­bris was cleared away, Bendi Belili, a study of five tal­ented mu­si­cians from Congo, emerged as the win­ner of the au­di­ence prize.

More prizes were handed out on Satur­day af­ter­noon by the Dublin Film Crit­ics’ Cir­cle. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the body, headed by Tara Brady of this parish, named Ben­jamin Heisen­berg’s The Rob­ber, an Aus­trian thriller, the best film of the fes­ti­val. Best Ir­ish film was Carmel Win­ters’s Snap.

Brian Jen­nings, part­ner of the late Michael Dwyer, pre­sented the Michael Dwyer Dis­cov­ery award to Nicky Go­gan and Maya Der­ring­ton of Still Films, which has pro­duced such fine doc­u­men­taries as Seaview, Py­jama Girls and Build Me Some­thing Mod­ern.
