New film distribution projects for summer 2018

After a fantastic spring 2018, and the releases of PSYCHO VERTICAL and ALAN HINKES – THE FIRST BRITON TO CLIMB THE WORLD’S HIGHEST MOUNTAINS, I’m excited about the many new projects projects coming up over the summer.

Two fascinating north-east projects lead the way, with Abi Lewis’ GEORDIE JAZZ MAN about to make its bow around the UK and David Kenny’s critically-important IT IS NOT ONE WAY showing that discussion can be an alternative to demonstration, which heads out on the road in the next few months.

We’ll also be taking the US documentary DIRTBAG – THE LEGEND OF FRED BECKEY out to cinemas from mid-August, introducing UK audiences to the maverick US mountaineer who could have had the world figuratively – as well as literally – at his feet.

Finally, sometime in the early autumn, we’ll be lending our support to Chris Lewis’ THE YUKON ASSIGNMENT too.  It’s the brilliant story of a father and son’s journey across the vast Yukon –  by canoe!

With more conversations currently happening with filmmakers all across the world, watch out for more exciting announcements very soon! Find out about our current distribution projects by following this link.

Adventures in grassroots film distribution

I’m having a whale of a time working on film distribution projects as part of my consultancy services.

Offering a bespoke and tailored approach to a grassroots release means close contact and consultation with the filmmaker and a really film-friendly and common-sense approach for the release of their work.

So far, the fantastic PSYCHO VERTICAL, the first film I’ve supported this year, has been booked into over 30 UK cinemas over the last month, including several Picturehouse sites, Glasgow Film Theatre, Watershed Bristol, Showroom, Sheffield and many more.  With four clients on the books, I have a really diverse and exciting set of projects to work on and I’m currently in negotiation with a further five filmmakers worldwide, stretching from the UK to Australia, Japan and the US.  I’m really very grateful to be given the opportunities to help tell the stories they have made by these talented people.

Find out about the first three films I’m supporting in 2018, and our approach to releasing each at my film distribution support page here.
