IFI Stranger than fiction Jury Award 2014

'Bloody Good Headline', the latest documentary film from Areaman Productions, has won the Jury Award for Best Short Documentary at this year's IFI Stranger Than Fiction Documentary Film Festival. The film, directed by Tom Burke and Paul Quinn, and produced by Shane Hogan, takes a look at the lives and thoughts of five men who sell newspapers in Dublin's rush hour traffic. The film screened as part of the latest collection of short documentary films made under Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board's 'Reality Bites' short film scheme. The IFI Stranger than Fiction Festival is very special to us as our first documentary project 'The Liberties' screened at the festival back in 2008, so this was a nice honour.

'Bloody Good Headline', the latest documentary film from Areaman Productions, will have its premiere at this year's IFI Stranger Than Fiction Documentary Film Festival. The film, directed by Tom Burke and Paul Quinn, and produced by Shane Hogan, takes a look at the lives and thoughts of five men who sell newspapers in Dublin's rush hour traffic. It screens as part of the latest collection of short documentary films made under Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board's Reality Bites short Film scheme, on Saturday, September 27th at 5pm, in the IFI.

The film explores the experience of the orange-vested newspaper sellers who dot our city streets in the mornings and evenings. A cast of characters with outlooks as diverse as their places of origin, the people behind the headlines open up about their unusual working lives.

Full sound post production on the film was completed by Steve Fanagan at Ardmore Sound & Music Supervision by Gerry Horan.
