Emer Reynold’s ‘The Farthest’ wins Emmy October 1, 2018

Farthest

Fantastic news from across the water! Emer Reynold’s ‘The Farthest’ has taken home the award for Outstanding Science and Technology Documentary at this years 39th International News and Documentary Emmy Awards.

Written and directed by Reynolds, ‘The Farthest’ chronicles the four-decade work of nuclear-powered probes Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, which have travelled over 22 million combined miles since leaving Earth to study the outer solar system.

Produced by John Murray and Clare Stronge for Crossing the Line Films, our very own Steve Fanagan was the re-recording mixer, sound designer and supervising sound editor for the film.

The Emmy is the latest in a long line of accolades for ‘The Farthest’ since it made its world premiere at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival last year, where it picked up three awards for Best Irish Documentary, the AUDI-ence Award and the George Byrne Maverick Award (Emer Reynolds).  The film has since gone on to screen at some of the world’s most renowned film festivals including Tribeca and the Sydney International Film Festival, as well as picking up the IFTA for Best Feature Documentary and the Gold Lion Award at the Barcelona International Film Festival.

Congratulations to all involved on the well deserved win!
