The highlight of the Irish film and TV calendar, the 2016 IFTA Film and Drama awards are set to take place this Saturday at the Round Room of the Mansion House.

The IFTA Film & Drama Awards honour the finest work from Ireland’s top actors, directors, writers and film makers, and we’re very pleased that a number of Screen Scene staff members have received nominations at this years event

First up — Nathan Nugent is in the running in the Best Editor editor category for his work on Lenny Abrahamson’s Room.

In the Best Sound category, our team here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound will compete in three of the four nominations for their work on Room, Sing Street, and The Hallow. Best of luck to Niall Brady, Steve Fanagan, Michelle Fingleton, Garrett Farrell,  Ken Galvin, Robert Flanagan, and Daniel Crowley in their respective categories!

Screen Scene VFX are up for two of the four nominations in the Best VFX category for their work on Frankenstein Chronicles and Ripper Street Series 3. Best of luck to named nominees Ed Bruce, Nicholas Murphy and Alan Collins!

Screen Scene posted features Room and Sing Street tied neck and neck with the most amount of nominations at this years event, eight each, with both films in the running for Best Director and Best Picture, while Vincent Gallagher’s delightful short Love is A Sting and Damien O’Donnell’s heart wrenching How Was Your Day (both of which were posted here at Screen Scene) are both in the running for Best Short film.
