A Northern Irish short film has been nominated in the Live Action Short Film category at the 95th Academy Awards.
“An Irish Goodbye”, written and directed by East Belfast filmmaker Ross White and his creative partner Tom Berkeley was the only UK/Irish film to be shortlisted for the 2023 Oscars.
Now the film is one step closer to the final glory, having been announced in the top five films in the category today.
This year’s Oscar nominations have been dominated by Irish creatives and actors.
Irish actors Barry Keoghan and Brendan Gleeson were nominated for Best Supporting Actor for their performances in “Banshees of Inisherin” earlier today.
Their co-star Kerry Condon was also recognised for her role in “Banshees” while Colin Farrell and Paul Mescal (Aftersun) received Best Leading Actor nominations.
