Ireland was in the spotlight last week for its social progressiveness, and the country has now let the world know that they’re artistic progressives too.
Last night, the Irish Film and Television Academy awarded Tomm Moore’s feature Song of the Sea its top film prize at the 2015 Film & Drama Awards.

Moore’s Song of the Sea was the only animated work in the best film category, and competed against five live-action films.
