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.
