Award-winning screenwriters Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson.

Northern Irish screenwriters Declan Lawn and Adam Patterson have spoken of their delight after scooping an IFTA award for their dark comedy about so-called punishment beatings in post-conflict Belfast.

The pair picked up the Best Short Film gong for Rough – the third major accolade in less than a year. Last month it won Best International Short Fiction at the prestigious Krakow Film Festival, while in autumn 2020, the short was honoured at the Kerry Film Festival.
