The IFB Reality Bites Short “The Last Days of Peter Bergmann” which I edited last year has its US Premiere tonight as part of the Sundance Film Festival. Obviously this is very exciting and while I’m disappointed I couldn’t make it over, I’m sure the director Ciaran Cassidy and Producer Morgan Bushe (Fastnet Films) will have a blast in Park City. It’s a great opportunity for them and the films future prospects.
Here’s the films trailer
The film had its world premiere as part of Dublin’s documentary festival, the IFI Stranger Than Fiction Festival where it went away with the Audience award for best film.
