North American Premiere of Addicted to Sheep
EXCITING NEWS! We are so pleased to announce that Addicted to Sheep has been selected to screen at Ashland Independent Film Festival, in Oregon (USA), one of the coolest film festivals in the world according to MovieMaker!
Ashland Independent Film Festival was the first festival to recognise the quality of the film and contacted us in February last year but we were unable to accept their invitation as we were awaiting the decision from Sheffield Doc/Fest which we considered to be a bigger and more local platform which we could better support. However, we promised to enter the film for the 2016 festival knowing there was no guarantee we’d be selected again and lo and behold we were selected and we are looking forward to participating in this lively and vibrant festival that attracts over 7,000 film lovers in this historic town the Washington Post called “a dream you’ll never want to leave”. We hope this is the launchpad for the long awaited release of the film onto the North American market. For those of you who live on the Western seaboard this is an opportunity not to be missed to see it on the big screen. The festival runs from the 7th to 11th of April and Addicted to Sheep will be screened on Friday 8th of April at 3.30pm local time at The Historic Ashland Armory.
It’s a long way from home but Director Magali Pettier will make the journey from Northern England to Ashland and will take part in the Q&A session after the screening. So please come and say hello if you can join us on this very special occasion. We won’t be able to bring our life size sheep with us for obvious reasons but some miniature ones might join us on our travels!
