Congratulations to Ren O Hare from Trinity College Dublin for winning Script of the Year at the 2020 Smedias, Rens’ script, Hotel really impressed our judge, well done! This year’s Script of the Year award was once again sponsored by Screen Ireland. 

Screen Ireland has been supporting Irish film since 1993, and has funded several critically acclaimed films such as Brooklyn starring Saorise Ronan, and Oscar winning, Once which follows a love story set in Dublin. In more recent news, they also financed the critically acclaimed Normal People

The judge for this year’s award was none other than Robbie Walsh, an award winning Director and Screenwriter, who you may recognize from Love/Hate. 

As Screen Ireland is responsible for supporting the creativity and sustainability in the Irish film, television and animation industry, it only makes sense that they are the sponsors for this award! A big well done to our winner and a big thank you to Screen Ireland for continuing to support the Smedias.
