Crossing the Line, have won awards for Best Editing, Best Wildlife Habitat Program and the overall Grand Teton Best of Festival Award for the film ‘On a River in Ireland’ – a film version of the nature documentary series The Secret Life of the Shannon at the world’s leading Wildlife Film Festival; Jackson Hole in Wyoming USA.
Jackson Hole is considered the ‘Oscars’ of wildlife-filmmaking and the Shannon series saw off competition from over 540 films including the BBC’s Africa and Frozen Planet series and Disney’s Chimpanzee feature.
It’s fantastic to see an Irish made documentary about one of Ireland’s greatest landmarks being acknowledged on the world stage.
