World Premiere of Addicted to Sheep at Sheffield Doc/Fest

Posted on May 7th, by admin in Our blogs. No Comments

EXCITING NEWS! We’re delighted and also a little bit humbled to have been selected to screen Addicted to Sheep at Sheffield Doc/Fest, one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals. Having the backing of Sheffield Doc/Fest for our Festival World Premiere is a real honour and with over 3,000 industry delegates from around the world and 25,000 public audiences from across the UK it’s also a great launch-pad for the film!

Described by Indiewire as the ‘Cannes for documentary people’ Sheffield International Film Festival is one of the top three documentary festivals and markets in the world. It takes place June 5-10 2015 and brings together the documentary family to celebrate the art and business of documentary for six action-packed days.

It’s a great feeling. We’ve reached our goal. And now, with a wave of goodwill towards our film, and the edit in front of us, will you please help us imagine an even more successful campaign? If you wanted to be part of it but haven’t had the chance to yet, you still can!

Post-production isn’t the final step in making a film. After the film is made, there are still festival submissions to pay for, legal, distribution and promotional costs to name but a few. Our post-production budget was small and largely based on a lot of good will from our small team who have all put their heart and soul into the film. If we can achieve a higher goal in this campaign right now, that just means a finished film without seeking out other funds further down the … Read More »
