From a report on IFTN it appears that congratulations are due to Irish writer/director Niall Heery, whose film Small Engine Repair just won two awards at the Nashville Film Festival – the Nashville Film Festival/Regal Cinemas Dreammaker Award for Best Feature and the Audience Award for Best Film.

Early this year Felim MacDermot interviewed Heery on behalf of the Guild, and you can read Heery’s thoughts about writing for film on the IPSG web site.
