We have had an avalanche of good news since the World Premiere of Addicted to Sheep at Sheffield Doc/Fest less than a year ago in June 2015. And we have more good news! Our 85 min film will hold its French Premiere at DOC-Cévennes International Documentary Festival in the south of France on 5th of May at 2.00pm at La Filature du Pont-de-Fer in Lasalle. The festival’s team has, for the last 2 months, been working hard to translate the film into french and subtitle it in time for the premiere so that we can share our story from the North Pennines with our french neighbours.
We hope this will lead to more screenings in France and the film to be released on DVD in french in the near future! If you have friends or family who live in The Cévennes please help us spread the word and let them know about our screening on 5th of May at 2.00pm local time. The festival runs from 29th of April to 3rd of May in five towns across The Cévennes and from 4th of May to 7th of May all screenings will take place in Lasalle.
Director Magali Pettier will make the journey from Northern England to the South of France by car with our life-size needle felted sheep (hopefully they go through Customs!) and will take part in the Q&A session after the screening.
