Two Hearts wins Best International Short Film at the Rome Independent Film Festival.
Following on from picking up the Best Short Film Award at the inaugural Fingal Film Festival in March, Darren Thorton's Two Hearts has also won the Best International Short Film at the Rome Independent Film Festival this month.
Written by Colin Thorton and produced by Colette Farrell for Calipo Pictures, Two Hearts tells the story of Lorna, who after a man from her past is released from prison, sees her emotions spiral out of control. She finds herself inextricably drawn back to a life, and a love, that's forbidden.
Two Hearts was funded under Bord Scannán na hÉireann / the Irish film Board's Signatures Short Scheme. The Signatures scheme aims to encourage strong, original storytelling, visual flair, and production values appropriate to the big screen.
