‘Bye, Bye Now’ Receives Audience Award Silverdocs Festival

The Irish short documentary Bye, Bye Now scooped the Audience Award at the AFI Silversdocs Festival which took place in Maryland, US last week from 21–27 June.

The documentary, which was co-directed and co-produced by Film Ireland Commissioning editor Ross Whittaker (Saviours) and Aideen O’Sullivan, follows the planned removal of a number of phoneboxes from around the country, evoking memories in the lives of the rural Irish communities.

Bye, Bye Now has already been successful in Ireland and on the international festival circuit since its première at the Corona Cork Film Festival last year. The film was produced by True Films and was financed through Reality Bites, the IFB short documentary scheme.

Silverdocs has screened over 100 films from over 50 countries, with an estimated 25,000 viewers in attendance.
