Cast of Irish feature DOLLHOUSE pick up award at the Odessa International Film Festival
The ensemble cast of Kirsten Sheridan's DOLLHOUSE shared the award for Best Acting at the Odessa International Film Festival in the Ukraine.
The festival held from July 13 - 21 reached an attendance of approx 100,000 with an audience of 3.5 million tuning in for the live broadcast of the opening ceremony.
Starring Seana Kerslake, Jonny Ward, Ciarán McCabe, Kate Stanley Brennan, Shane Curry and Jack Reynor, the film explores a night in the life of a group of street teens from Dublin's inner city who break into an upper class house in Dalkey. The break-in quickly moves into a night of frenzy, driven by a series of revelations that will leave lasting marks on each of them, and resulting in an emotional conclusion that they will carry with them.
DOLLHOUSE was produced by John Wallace for The Factory and was funded by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board and Lightstream Pictures. The film marks Kirsten Sheridan's first project as writer and director - it marks her third feature film as director.
The film screened at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival and at SXSW earlier this year.
