Irish Folk Furniture [clip] (2012) from Alan Eddie on Vimeo.

We are delighted that Tony Donoghue’s quietly moving Irish Folk Furniture has won the Best Animation prize at Sundance 2013. The film captures the relationship between a community and its furniture and follows 16 traditional pieces of folk furniture – often associated with poverty and hard times –  as they are restored and returned to their homes.

There’s a good, brief interview with Tony on

The film was available to watch in full on YouTube until the end of the festival on 27th January 2013. Enjoy a short clip from the film above.
