Emmet Kelly has won The Best Actor Award at The Dublin International Short Film and Music Festival. The Awards Ceremony was hosted at The Sugar Club in Dublin on Sunday last, 7th October.
The Waterford-born actor won the prestigious Award for his lead role in Lost Memories, which screened alongside an incredible 160 films from around the world.
“We were delighted just to be part of the 2018 Film Festival, but to come home with the Best Actor Award was a truly humbling experience. I watched so much talent on screen during the Festival, both national and international, that it is truly a privilege to be chosen for this Award” said Emmet Kelly.
The film, directed by Eamonn Murphy, tells the story of Sean who races against the clock to a family emergency while dealing with inter-family politics over the phone. The film stars Emmet Kelly (Fair City, The Current), Aoife King (Mammal, Fair City) and John Kavanagh (Vikings, Braveheart). The film was a joint production between Army Of Id and Burning House Productions.
Over the past few months, Lost Memories has won numerous awards at The Boston Irish Film Festival, The Eindhoven Film Festival, The Richard Harris International Film Festival, The Underground Film Festival, The Discover Film Awards London, Fastnet Film Festival and Feel The Reel Film Festival.
