JustFacts launches in Berlin

Berlin, Germany (Saturday February 7, 2009) – ID Communications Inc. announces its “Just
line of international feature documentaries, it was announced by Dan Shannon, President

of ID Communications at Berlin’s 59th European Film Market (EFM).

The “Just Facts” line of feature documentaries premieres 4 new theatrical documentaries at the EFM, seeking to position itself in the growing market for strong ‘point-of-view’ issues-driven documentaries intended for worldwide theatrical and DVD release.

“Our aim it to meet the growing demand for shocking factual stories told on
cinema screens where fundamental issues in our society are often swept under
the carpet by mainstream media, either because of fear of advertiser
reprisal, or simply because many of the news formats and ‘reality
tv’ formats no longer adequately lend themselves to exploring complex issues” said
Dan Shannon.
“We are excited that our first 4 films in this strand all raise important
questions about our rights to know ‘the facts’ in their respective areas of inquiry, but
above all, remain solid entertainment with strong potential for exploitation on
DVD and other media. If the films subjects are ‘too difficult for television’ remains
to be seen. We are entering the market with a solid range of committed and prospective

theatrical and DVD partners from Canada, US, Australia, South Africa, UK, and more.

The “Just Facts” launches at EFM:

America The Beautiful– challenging America’s notions of ‘beauty’ and self-esteem

Expelled:No Intelligence Allowed– questioning freedom of inquiry for scientists

Frag– Exploring the social impact of the exploding world of video gaming,

American Savannah– A humorous critique of America’s fascination with green grass
