In probably the strongest year in 15 years for Irish film, with 9 Irish Oscar nominations, we’re thrilled to announce that Older Than Ireland has been nominated for an Irish Film & Television Academy Award (IFTA) for Best Feature Documentary. The Award ceremony will be held in April, 2016. Congratulations to everyone involved with the making of the film, especially the wonderful centenarians of Ireland.
Film Ireland catch up with the team behind Usheru.
“Few would argue that the cinema is the superior movie viewing experience, yet life has that knack of getting in the way. Too often when we’re just about to book those tickets we get deflated to learn the movie has moved on or we hear about one-off events and festivals after their run. Not anymore because usherU will be the pocket PA for the movie buff.”
Co-founders Oliver Fegan, Catherine Downes & Andres Macias
