In a very competitive short film category at last week’s Fastnet Film Festival, Wildcard are delighted to announce that Damien O’Donnell’s film How Was Your Day? won Best Drama, whilst Geist by Alex Sherwood, Ben Harper and Sean Mullen took home the award for Best Animation.

Both short films were funded by the Irish Film Board and have already won several competitions, with How Was Your Day? receiving the Grand Jury Award for Narrative Shorts at the prestigious South by Southwest Festival, whilst Geist was awarded the Best Animated Short Film at this year’s Irish Film and Television Awards.

How Was Your Day? was directed by Damien O’Donnell and produced by Emmaline Dowling for Suitable Films and Geist was directed by Alex Sherwood, Ben Harper and Sean Mullen and produced by Daniel Spencer for Giant Animation.

“Congratulations to Damien, Alex, Ben & Sean.” says Wildcard’s Managing Director Patrick O’Neill. “ I look forward to seeing what these bunch of talented guys will bring to Irish audiences in the not too distant future”.
