Thanks to everyone who is attending the screenings – there has been a great response so far. If you haven’t had the chance to see Island yet it is playing this Saturday & Sunday at the Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey. There is a Q&A with the directors Brek & Elizabeth on the Saturday night but this is selling out quickly so if you are interested in a ticket you best be quick. For all other cinema locations it’s best to keep checking back on the http://www.nbcq.co.uk/films website. Any new cinemas that are added we will post on facebook and twitter too. Sorry we can’t give you more notice but we tell you as soon as we know!
Some great news internationally! Island has been accepted into the prestigious Haifa Film Festival in Israel in October this year so our friends over there can enjoy a cold Scottish winter! We are still waiting to hear back on other festival submissions around the world….fingers crossed.
Thank you to all who have entered our Best Merlin Quote competition for the Signed DVD’s the following quotes were handpicked from hundreds of entries by Brek & Elizabeth. Many of you picked the same quotes – and with good reason because they were really lovely – but two which stood out for humour and pathos are (drum roll):
Kim Hislop – “I love old crypts. Wouldn’t be seen dead anywhere else!”
Pearlynn Ang – “Some choices are easy. Some…stay with you forever”.
Congratulations folks! We will be in touch to find out where to send the DVDs when they are released later this year.
For the next competition we thought it would be a great idea to ask ‘What’s your favourite film adaptation, and why?”. We have two signed posters of the film to give away. Deadline will be the 16th of May and again the best entries will be announced in our next blog. Please email into firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via twitter or facebook.
Thanks very much for your continued support and any help with advertising is most greatly appreciated.
The Island Team.
