The Irish entry for best international feature at the Oscars, An Cailín Ciúin has become the first Irish language film to gross more than one million euro at the box office.
Released in May, it was the first Irish-language feature to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.
An Cailín Ciúin has been highly praised by critics and in March beat Kenneth Branagh’s Oscar-nominated Belfast in winning seven awards at the Irish Film and Television Academy awards.
The longlist for the Oscars will be announced in December.
