"Freedom" award for John Deery

Guild member John Deery is to be honoured by the US National Board of Review of Motion Pictures for his debut film Conspiracy of Silence.

Along with Farenheit 9/11 and The Passion of the Christ, Conspiracy of Silence, a film about corruption and abuse in the Irish Catholic church, will receive a "Special recognition of Films that Reflect the Freedom of Expression”.

John Deery was presented with the Hartley-Merrill International Screenwriting Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001. As a result of this he was invited to attend the Sundance Screenwriters’ Lab where he developed the story and raised finance to make the film.
