Irish short film Oh written and directed by Cathal Feeney has won the Best Comedy award at the 2012 Vacaville International Film Festival in California.
Shot in Birr Co. Offaly as part of the 2011 Offline film festival, where it took first prize, the film focuses on the conversation between a father and son on a local bus journey.
With a skeleton crew of three people, including Ed Griffith (camera/editing) and Eileen Culloty (sound operator) it was filmed and edited over three days using a cast derived from the local community.
‘We received a huge amount of help from the Offline organising committee,’ said Cathal. ‘In addition to assisting us in assembling a cast they were also instrumental in sourcing the bus which was central to the success of the film.’
Oh has also been screened at the 2012 Fastnet Film Festival and the 2012 Galway Film Fleadh.
