The success of the short film, Warts and All’, continued on Sunday night last, with it picking up the award for Best MidWest Short Film at the Richard Harris International Film Festival. There was stiff competition in this category, namely Wednesday Child, directed by Laura O’Shea, which had three nominations in total.

Warts and all editor, Simon McGuire, was present to accept the award on behalf of director Pat Shortt, writer Michelle Lehane and producer Lee Crowley. This award comes on the back of picking up the Best International Narrative Short Film Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival in California the previous week. The film will be continuing to screen at various festivals around the country and abroad, so keep an eye out for it in coming schedules.
