Thread Name: Morris: A Life With Bells On (film)
Subject: RE: Morris: A Life With Bells On
I just got this in answer to an email I sent:
Thank you for your interest in Morris. We would love to show the film right across the globe and especially in the US (I know there are more Morris teams in the States than in the UK).
Film distribution is a weird thing and not down to the film makers. Films get put in cinemas by distribution companies (Icon, Revolver, Lionsgate, etc). When those companies saw Morris, they loved it, but were worried there was no audience for it. We want to show them that there is. So, we need people like you to lobby their local cinemas en masse, or even the distribution companies themselves to show the film. If enough people make a noise to them about Morris, we can roll it out globally and everyone can get to see it.
Let's make them realise that people want to see this film.
All best wishes
Let's help them out, folks!
