Moviemaker Kirsten Sheridan has called on the Irish public to support home-grown filmmakers - and watch and enjoy their big-screen efforts. The Disco Pigs director laments her fellow countrymen and women's reluctance to back local talent until it has been successful in the U.S. She says, "There is a real hunger for success in America. People like to be around it, too much so when you look at the cult of celebrity over there. What I would like to see is Irish people embrace Irish cinema. I don't think that has happened yet. "They (Irish filmmakers) have to go away and become famous and then they have the green stamp of approval and come back."
