February 14, 2009, 11:54 AM–First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! This is just a quick reminder to all of you, not to miss the award ceremonies today. The main ceremony at Berlinale takes place today at 19:30 CET (1:30pm EST). There will be live streaming and here’s the schedule:

19.30 CET Gala Ceremony
21.00 CET Press Conference
As you know, the movie Cherrybomb starring Rupert Grint is competing for the Best First Feature Award — this prize is awarded by a three-member strong international jury. You may read about it here. Good luck Lisa and Glenn!
Then, a few hours later, to be precise at 9:30pm GMT (4:30pm EST) the 6th Annual Irish Film and Television Awards ceremony takes place. David Holmes is nominated for his scores for movies Hunger and Cherrybomb. The ceremony will broadcast live on RTÉ One, and selected highlights from the IFTAs will be broadcast on BBC Two Northern Ireland at 7pm GMT on Monday 16 February.
Good luck David, oh and Happy birthday!
Note: if anyone could record any of these shows and send us the clips, we’d be very grateful!
UPDATE: Unfortunately, Lisa and Glenn did not win the First Time Feature Award. 🙁 It went to film Gigante
by Adrián Biniez, while Fredrik Edfeldt got a special mention for his film Flickan. Fingers crossed for David Holmes!
UPDATE 2: From everyone here on the ICM staff, we want to wish a well-deserved congratulations to the talented David Holmes for his score, on the movie ‘Hunger’. He’s most certainly made fans out of the entire ICM staff and everone who’s listened to the soundtrack to ‘Cherrybomb’ We’re sure there will be more awards for him in the future and wish him the best of luck!
Oh and don’t forget to leave him messages on his MySpace, he will appreciate your support!
