Our productions have been commissioned or transmitted by RTÉ, Channel 4, BBC, La Sept/ARTE, Ulster Television, PBS stations in the United States and many other international broadcasters. They have won a number of awards and have been screened at the Chicago, Melbourne, London, Hong Kong, Augsburg, Taormina, Sydney, Geneva, Wellington, Dublin, Cork, Foyle, and Celtic Film Festivals; at INPUT; and in retrospectives throughout the world. Our four-part series about life in Dublin's Mountjoy Prison, The Joy, received the highest ever ratings for any documentary series in the history of Irish television, when transmitted on RTÉ in January/February 1997. If You're Not In, You Can't Win!  was shortlisted for an ESB Media Award (TV Documentary) in 2004.
Skin in the Game (2012) was nominated for an IFTA in 2013 and won Best Documentary at the 2014 Boston Irish Film Festival.
