Limerick film Streetlights awarded top prize

Limerick film-maker Jason Reddan and his team have won first prize in the world’s biggest short film competition on June 6 for their Limerick Film Streetlights. Limerick film Streetlights.

Jason’s short film is entitled ‘Streetlights’ and tells the story of a man with a photographic memory who psychologically reflects on his own traumatic past. The film contains stunning cinematography and fantastic performances to make a captivating few minutes of on-screen genius.

This three-minute film, produced, written and filmed in Limerick, brushed off over 1200 entries from around the globe and is arguably the most successful piece of film-making seen in the city for years.

This fast-paced drama stars actors Liam O’Brien, Graham Gill, and Ethan Cassley, and is produced by Nigel Shinnors.


“I am actually speechless. A massive THANK YOU to everyone who went out of their way to support us”, expressed Jason following his deserved win at the competition.
