Who We Are

Crossing the Line Productions are one of Ireland's leading documentary film-makers making highly crafted films featuring powerful stories on subjects ranging from wildlife to science to history. In the last 5 years, we have produced multiple award-winning feature documentaries, television series and one-offs. These films have been broadcast worldwide in many different countries including on RTÉ, BBC, ZDF, Arte, PBS, France TV and SVT and screened at numerous festivals. Our films 'Broken Tail' and 'On a River in Ireland' have both been awarded the highest honours in natural history film-making with 'Broken Tail' winning the top prize at Jackson Hole Film Festival while 'On a River in Ireland' won both that award and the Golden Panda for best film at the Wildscreen Film Festival. In 2017 “Wild Ireland – The Edge of the World” won the Grierson Award for Best Natural History Documentary and a Royal Television Society NI Award for Best Specialist Factual.
