Superheroes swoop film award

Two Strabane superheroes have fought their way to a prestigious award at the Ireland-wide Fresh Film Festival.
Fantastico and Fantastiboy are the creation of local movie making duo Ciaran Duffy and Dhamodar Smith. Last week the colourful heroes flew to victory at the Fresh Film Festival in Limerick, scooping the Audience Award and a Highly Commended for Performance.
The 11 minute short film entitled ‘The Rise of Mustachio’ is the third outing for Fantastico, his sidekick and their questionable superhero abilities
. It is also the second win for the unorthodox crimefighters, having lifted two Audience Awards at the same festival in 2010.
