Winning Films 2015

2015 was the year we welcomed Tomm Moore as our special guest and also held a special screening of Irish short animated films. It was inspiring to watch these shorts which spanned over twenty years and were created during some of the ‘lean’ years. The Irish Retrospective Award was won by Cathal Gaffney for his short ‘Give Up Yer Auld Sins’. The Audience Choice Award was won by a new studio – Ben and Anvil won ‘hands down’ for ‘The Story of Gin’!
