We are delighted to announce that My Feral Heart has been nominated for 3 IARA Awards 2017:
BEST FEATURE / INDIE FILM (Jane Gull)
BEST YOUNG ACTRESS (Shana Swash)
BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY (Duncan Paveling)
Winners will be announced at the award ceremony on September 2, 2017.
This is the 2nd nomination for Duncan’s screenplay, the first being a long-list nomination at the British Independent Film Awards.
Six of the ‘Best’? My Feral Heart has already received 5 awards in the ‘Best Feature Film’ category: Lift-Off Season Awards 2016 (Global), Breaking Down Barriers 2016 (Russia), Tirana International Film Festival 2016 (Albania – Panorama Section), Fargo Film Festival 2016 (USA – Honorable Mention), and Cinequest 2016 (USA – Audience Vote).
The ‘Best Feature’ nod is particularly satisfying. While IARA have chosen to nominate Jane, ‘Best Feature’ awards recognise the collective talents, efforts, and success of the entire cast and crew of a film. We are up against stiff opposition with Amma Assante’s A United Kingdom also nominated in this category, but if the film does win the ‘Best Feature’ it will be because of the entire creative and production team. Thank you one and all!
The IARA Awards (International Achievement Recognition Awards) highlights outstanding talents, laudable initiatives and recognise the hard work of those in Theatre, Music, Films/TV and the Fashion industry. This annual prestigious award ceremony was founded in 2014, aimed at celebrating exceptional talents and organisations for excellence, diversity, equality and innovations.
Well done Shana, Duncan, Jane, and all other Ferals… And good luck!
