The Corona Cork Film Festival came to a close on Sunday with the handing out of prizes to a wide and varied array of short films. Among the prizewinners was Phil Harrison’s very touching Even Gods. The picture follows an older addict as he has a moving meeting with his daughter and granddaughter. I tipped it in my report on the festival and was delighted to see it walk away with both the audience and jury prizes for best Irish short. In these circumstances, one would usually say something like “it will be in cinemas any day soon”. But, thanks to the wonders of the internet, we can, in fact, show it to you right now. See below. The full list of winners appears at the bottom of the page.
