December 11, 2013 Leave a comment

It’s been a while since we last blogged about, and completed the titles sequence for John Michael McDonagh‘s new film ‘Calvary‘. But we are absolutely delighted to see the exclusive new trailer released on Twitter this week through the film’s official profile @CalvaryFilm.

Additionally we see the film has announced its’ World Premiere at next years Sundance Film Festival, which we very much look forward to seeing.

Sundance celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2014, having introduced global audiences to some of the most groundbreaking films of the past three decades. The festival starts on Jan 16 and runs through to the 26th at Park City – Utah.

So, to keep you going till then – here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure:

Calvary‘ is a black comedy-drama, telling the tale of Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson), a good-natured priest intent on making the world a better place who is continually disheartened by the spiteful inhabitants of his small country town. When his life is threatened during confession, he is forced into battle with the dark forces that start to close in on him.

I’m excited today to be at Screen International’s launch of the 2013 UK Film Summit in association with the British Film Institute (BFI).

Today is a one day industry conference at BFI Southbank’s NFT1, which is expecting to see more than 300 industry attendees.
The Summit will primarily focus on the UK film industry and its place within the worlds market, looking at opportunities for the industry in the future.

Many experts and keynote speakers will be taking part in todays event, including British Film Commission’s Iain Smith (Wanted, The Mission, The Killing Fields) and Slate Films’ Andrea Calderwood (The Last King of Scotland, A Most Wanted Man) – who we had pleasure in creating the title sequence for their latest film ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’, which is due for release next year.


Ben Roberts (BFI Film Fund) and DJ Films’ Damian Jones (The Iron Lady, Belle) also join the impressive list of panellists, addressing the challenges in film finance; development of audiences in the UK and how distributors and exhibitors can adapt to the digital world; the UKs place in the global market, amongst many other areas to conclude on how the film world can benefit from convergence in our multi-platform world.

The day is looking to be very interesting as well as a good opportunity to discuss and share views with other film professionals.

For those that are coming, I look forward to seeing you there.
