We’re delighted that Arracht picked up the coveted Audience Award at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival!
The Audience Award is the only award of the Glasgow Film Festival, and is selected by festival attendees every year. This year, Glasgow Film Festival celebrated its highest ever attendance, with over 43,000 attendees.
Director Tom Sullivan said, on winning the Audience Award for Arracht: “This was completely unexpected and I am honoured. I would like to, from the bottom of my heart, thank everyone at Glasgow Film Festival for believing in our film and all the people who came and voted. Arracht is a film set during the Great Hunger in Ireland. To win the audience award here, in Glasgow, a city that was so influenced by the fallout of that dark period in our history is truly humbling.
This award belongs to my brilliant cast and crew, the dedicated production team at Macalla and to TG4, Screen Ireland and the BAI. This means so much to all of us. Thank you Glasgow!”
