Hello All –
So it seems the opening night of Island at the Curzon Renoir on the 25th April is now sold out. Thanks so much if you are one of the lucky ones that managed to get tickets – looking forward to seeing you there.
Soda Pictures have announced the first round dates for the Island UK screenings – You can find them on the Island The Movie facebook page or the the New British Cinema Quarterly webpage http://www.nbcq.co.uk/films/ – but here is a handy list of those booked in so far!

We are starting to gather all the reviews from the press screenings – here are a few that we are particularly proud of!
“Colin Morgan is outstanding” Sight & Sound
“A moving story that stays with you” The Herald
“Natalie Press is perfect” Screen International
And finally – thanks so much for all your help so far in guiding us in the direction of some cool film festivals which include the Rotterdam Film festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, Montreal Film Festival and the Semana Film Festival in Spain – any more you can think of would be greatly appreciated.
And also if you think your university would be interested in hosting a Q&A evening please let us know as we are really keen to share our experiences with fellow filmmakers – so far we have been to the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, Film London and TBWA advertising agency (apparently they’re keen to model themselves more on independent film-makers!). We will be holding a Q&A at the Central Film School in London in May and are setting up others as this blog gets written but if you can think of any others please do get in touch.
Thanks very much for your continued support –
Looking forward to seeing you at one of the screenings.
