News and updates about SKIN

It feels very strange, after over a year of promoting SKIN at film festivals, to be nearing not the finishing line but the starting line, as we head towards our US release 30th October. Not that our releases in the UK and Holland have been insignificant milestones - but I can't help feeling the US is really where the film could and should achieve lift-off, because the market is so much bigger.

So many aspects of American culture and history resonate with this story (not least its current president's own life story and the challenges he faces), I can't help feeling SKIN will truly speak to people in the US. And it is, after all, where the film has received the most number of prizes. Most recently. Helene Muddiman, the film's composer, picked up two awards - the first from Moondance International Film Festival, the second from the Accolade Film Awards, where she received the Award of Excellence.

To all those who have supported us along the way - my heartfelt thanks. And those who have yet to see the film at a festival, I do hope you'll be coming in droves - and bringing your friends - when the film opens in a theatre near you.

I would love to know when this will screen in Los Angeles. I'm a huge fan of Sophie Okonedo as well as the work of Sam Neill and ALice Krige. This looks like an Oscar worthy film.

Thank you,

I'm very excited to see the film and if there will be a los angeles premier I'd love a press pass so I can write about it on my website.
