Simon O’Neill’s short film Tell Me About Yourself has been selected as one of 10 finalists in the Hrabal PUBlished competition organised by the Budapest Short Film Festival in Hungary.
Devised to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Czech author Bohumil Hrabal, the competition was open to films on any theme that the judges felt reflected the life, work or style of the famous writer. Prizes on offer include €1,000, a weekend in Prague or Budapest and a barrel of beer!
Tell me about yourself, which stars Guy Fearon & Samia Rida, is the story of a struggling actor’s frustrating attempts to record an audition video. The film was shot entirely on an iPhone (4S) and has already won the Best International Film & Best Actor awards at the 3rd Olleh Smartphone Film Festival in Seoul, South Korea.
Tell Me About Yourself will be broadcast as part of RTE’s Shortscreen series on April 21st.
