The Loughinisland massacre documentary, No Stone Unturned has been nominated for an Emmy Award. The film, directed by Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, was produced by Belfast based production company, Fine Point Films.
The film is nominated in the Outstanding Investigative Documentary category in the 40th News and Documentary Emmy Awards which celebrate the best talent in news and journalism around the world.
We are overwhelmed with the news that No Stone Unturned has been nominated for a prestigious Emmy award. The team behind this film, both in New York and Belfast, was determined to shine a light on this very dark moment in our history.
Alex Gibney is a master storyteller and we thank him for bringing his immense skills to bear on this story.
No one has been held accountable for the murder of six men at Loughinisland over 25-years ago.
The arrest of myself and journalist Barry McCaffrey by the Police Service of Northern Ireland in August 2018 was an affront to the families who we remain indebted to for entrusting us with their story.
We can only hope that this recognition for the film brings further attention to their campaign for justice.Trevor Birney, Producer
