Slamdance – One Hundred Mornings receives special mention

Irish movie One Hundred Mornings by Conor Horgan, which will feature as part of the stunning line-up for the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, has received a special mention as part of the Grand Jury prize-giving at the 16th Utah Slamdance Film Festival.

The prestigious award itself went to Snow and Ashes, directed by Charles-Olivier Michaud.  The Documentary prize went to American Jihadist, directed by Mark Claywell, while Seed, from helmers Ben Richardson and Daniel Bird, picked up the animation short award, and First Day of Peace, by Mirko Rucnov the narrative short award.

The festival drew a record 5,000 submissions from around the world with 91making it in this year, with it’s banner of  “by filmmakers, for filmmakers.” Selected grand jury and audience award winners will be screened in a few US venues throughout the year, which should mean more exposure for these talented filmmakers.
