National Film School ‘To All My Darlings’ shortlisted for BAFTA

Written, produced and directed by National Film School students, graduate film ‘To All My Darlings’ has gone on to win big and is shortlisted for BAFTA Student Awards 2021.

  • Shortlisted for the BAFTA Student Awards 2021
  • Winner of the Audience Award for Best Short at the Dublin International Film Festival
  • Winner of the Spirit of the Festival Award at the Catalyst Film Festival
  • Winner of Best Cinematography Award the RTS Award – Irish Region

Written by National Film School graduate Derek Ugochukwu and based on stories from his Nigerian-Irish Church community, To all my Darlings reveals the wonderful multicultural side of contemporary Ireland that rarely appears on screen. The lives, perspectives, and difficulties displayed by the characters shows us an emerging New Ireland coming through.

Director, Lia Campbell, creates a mature and inspiring film focused on Irish multiculturalism and female fertility. A film like To All My Darlings exists so that people can be opened up to new perspectives they may not have been previously exposed to. The Nigerian community in Ireland is often ignored or underrepresented and this film tries to challenge the outdated view some may have of Ireland.
