Bio | Emer Reynolds

Emer Reynolds 
Director, Filmmaker 

Director Emer Reynolds is an Emmy nominated multi-award winning documentary director and feature film editor, based in Dublin, Ireland.

THE FARTHEST, her feature documentary on the trail-blazing Voyager spacecraft, described by Screen Daily as “ cathartic and moving .. the right film at the right time”, made its debut at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival, where it picked up three awards including the Audience Award and Best Irish Documentary, and has just had its International Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

Emer most recently directed HERE WAS CUBA, a feature documentary on the Cuban Missile Crisis described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a real-life end-of-the-world-thriller”. The film was commissioned by US Public Broadcaster PBS as their landmark documentary to mark the 50th anniversary of the crisis – the closest humankind has come to nuclear destruction. In the UK, the film premiered at the prestigious Sheffield Film Festival, was broadcast by Channel 4, nominated for a Grierson Award - the UK’s top documentary prize before going on to feature in film festivals worldwide garnering widespread acclaim for its riveting storytelling.

Emer also edited 'Here Was Cuba' winning Best Editing at the 2014 Irish Film & Television Awards (IFTAs) for the film. She again won the IFTA for Best Editing in 2015 for another feature documentary, ‘One Million Dubliners’ to add to her three previous Best Editing IFTAs for the feature films 'Timbuktu', 'My Brothers' and Channel 4's groundbreaking drama series 'Shameless'.

Over the last two decades, Emer's work has spanned feature films, TV Drama and documentary including editing one of the most successful Irish feature films of all time 'I Went Down'. Documentaries Emer has worked on include the multi award winning, twice Emmy nominated wildlife feature 'Broken Tail' and the three times Emmy nominated ‘On a River in Ireland made for the BBC & PBS and notable as the most awarded wildlife film in the world of the past two years. Emer has also written and directed four short dramas and directed a 6 part drama series 'Trouble in Paradise’ for RTE.

Emer studied Physics & Maths at Trinity College Dublin and has a lifelong passion for space exploration.

"In the 4.5 billion years of Planet Earth, modern humans have been around for barely 200,000 years, have developed technology in the last few hundred and have just now reached interstellar space. The story of Voyager thrills me to the core." -- Emer Reynolds
