Ireland was amongst the awards with Claire Dix’s documentary Broken Song (Ireland) winning both the Michael Dwyer Discovery Award and the Audience Award; Macdara Vallelly winning Best Irish Feature for Babygirl; and Cathy Pearson winning Best Irish Documentary for Get the Picture.

Festival Director Gráinne Humphreys said, “Wow what a 2013 festival – as the films and guests return home – all that remains are the memories (and photos) of a packed 11 days. I was delighted with the large numbers of Dubliners who joined us this year to experience the festival, meet our Irish and international guests and celebrate the best of world cinema – roll on 2014.”
