Once

Indies in the Awards Mix

Coin: Film was shot on a budget of approximately $160,000, three-fourths of which came from a successful application to the Irish Film Board. Director John Carney fronted much of the rest, partly by deferring his own pay.

Buzz: Months after it became a beloved underdog, consideration for the film has settled into the original song category, for which “Falling Slowly” and “If You Want Me” (written by the film’s lead performers, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova) are leading contenders.

Kudos: Won world audience kudo at Sundance and honors at the Dublin, Flanders and Dinard fests. Nommed for foreign-film Spirit.
