Damien McCarthy’s Hatch has won the Delta Film Award. The award is given out each year at the Festival of Fantastic Films in Manchester to new sci-fi and horror film directors.
Hatch has recently played at the Rhode Island International Horror Film Festival and Horrorthon in Dublin alongside McCarthy’s other short film Hungry Hickory.
McCarthy’s new short film Never Ever Open It will premiere next week at the Cork Film Festival followed by screenings in the Abertoir Horror Film Festival in Wales and the San Sebastien Horror & Fantasy Film Festival where Hatch last year won the Melies d’Argent Award.
