    At the prestigious Celtic Media Festival in Swansea, Wales on Wednesday the 24th April 2013 won the Award for Best Feature Length Drama.

It follows nine men from the engineering crew as they work among the huge, coal-fired furnaces and dynamos to satisfy the ship's demand for power. As the film unfolds, their personal stories of heroism are revealed. A fascinating hybrid of documentary and drama, complemented by stunning CGI, "Saving the Titanic" charts the ship's final hours and features a stellar ensemble cast.

    Ireland on Sunday is the IFI''s monthly showcase for new Irish film. Producer Dave Farrell and Editor DaithiConnaughton will participate in a post screening Q&A. 

    Keith and Dave Farrell’s docudrama A Terrible Beauty centres on two linked events during the Irish Rebellion of 1916: the battles of Mount Street and North King Street which culminated in the massacre of 15 innocent young men and boys.
