Short film Os­car for Ge­orge

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

Terry Ge­orge has been mus­ing on his suc­cess at the Os­cars last Sun­day. Ge­orge, raised in Belfast, had been nom­i­nated twice be­fore. But his vic­tory in the short film cat­e­gory for The Shore rat­tled his bones.

“When we came down off the stage we were greeted by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie,” he said.

“There were a lot of hugs and kisses and then Michael Dou­glas came over, too. There was a wee bit of a celebrity cel­e­bra­tion go­ing on.”

To catch The Shore on the big screen, check out the Love Ir­ish Cinema ses­sion at Dublin’s Screen Cinema on March 14th. The bill of short films also in­cludes Pen­te­cost, an­other of this year’s nom­i­nees. screencin­ema.ie
