Doctor Who Am I

Infamous Doctor Who screenwriter, Matthew Jacobs, is reluctantly dragged back into the American ‘Whoniverse’ to face the fandom that brutally rejected his work 25 years earlier.

In 1996, a Doctor Who TV movie was envisioned to lead the franchise into an exciting new future with a fresh direction but was met only by an outcry from disapproving fans. Now, follow the film’s screenwriter, Matthew Jacobs, as he is pulled back into the world of the Doctor Who fandom, where he unexpectedly finds himself a kindred part of this close-knit, yet vast, family of fans.

Theatrical release coming soon.

Kingslayer

Richard the Lionheart faces an impossible choice between true love and the crown, in this historical action epic starring Lord of the Rings’ John Rhys-Davies.

Days away from his coronation, a secret meeting with the woman he loves turns into a life and death fight for survival for the future King of England, Richard the Lionheart. Ambushed by hired mercenaries, and with the identity of the man who ordered his murder a mystery, Richard is left with no allies he can trust. Standing alone as civil war looms, with his kingdom on the brink of chaos, the young prince is forced to face not only his enemies but the harsh responsibilities of leadership. Will he choose to fight for his crown, or his love for a commoner?

From BAFTA-award winner Stuart Brennan, and Golden Globe winning Producer Gareth Wiley (MatchPoint, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), this impressive action epic, features a high profile cast including John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings), Carolina Carlsson (The Young Pope), Ryan Gage (The Hobbit) and Ian Hanmore (Game of Thrones).

Fadia’s Tree

Official UK Trailer for Fadia’s Tree, commissioned by Director and Artist Sarah Beddington and Over The Fence Films. In Cinemas August 5.
While millions of birds migrate freely in the skies, Fadia, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, yearns for the ancestral homeland she is denied. She challenges Sarah Beddington, the Director, to find an ancient mulberry tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence – with only inherited memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon as her guides. Along the way, Sarah meets with ornithologists whose observations on the homing instincts of the birds inadvertently reveal the unresolved problems of the region. Spanning fifteen years, this story of a friendship that stays connected across a divided land and a fragmented people adopts a birds’ eye perspective to reflect on freedom of movement, exile and the hope of return.

Tomorrow Morning

From the Director of West End hit Fame, this stunning big screen adaptation of Tomorrow Morning features exclusive new music and lyrics from the show’s original composer Laurence Mark Wythe. West End and Broadway stars, Samantha Barks (Frozen The Musical, Les Misérables) and Olivier Award nominee Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera) headline a superb ensemble cast, with Dame Joan Collins (Dynasty), Omid Djalili (The Mummy, The Infidel), Henry Goodman (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Taking Woodstock), Harriet Thorpe (Calendar Girls, Absolutely Fabulous), Anita Dobson (Hotel Babylon, EastEnders) and The X Factor’s Fleur East completing the star-studded line-up. In this timeless universal love story, the clock ticks down to two monumental days in the life of Bill and Catherine. Two perspectives of one story collide across time, seen in parallel yet ten years apart: on the eve of their wedding, as they embark on life together while coping with a life-changing event, and after a decade of marriage as they wrestle with the impact of their divorce on life with their young son. Kaleidoscope Entertainment, in association with GMW Media and Visualize Films, are thrilled to announce the international smash-hit musical Tomorrow Morning is coming to the big screen – in UK cinemas on 9th September and DVD on 17th October

It Snows In Benidorm….and New Zealand

GV Film Ltd were happy to continue a long running history of theatrical trailers for Parkland Entertainment with ‘It Snows In Benidorm’. Working closely with Parkland and Magus Marketing we crafted the trailer to build on Parkland’s impressive UK release of Timothy Spall’s previous release with Parkland, ‘The Last Bus’. GVFilm also created re-formatted and re-cut social media assets.

Before the UK release the trailer was also used by Rialto Distribution in New Zealand racking up almost a quarter of a million hits on Youtube alone.

Bank worker Peter lives a grey life in Manchester dealing with late repayments and posting daily about the weather. After an unexpected early retirement, he decides to visit his brother in Benidorm only to discover that he has disappeared. As Peter searches for clues, his encounters with an eclectic cast of characters only lead to further confusion. In looking for his brother, can he rediscover himself? Timothy Spall excels as a downtrodden man struggling to impose sense on the events around him, in a hapless detective story played out to a carnivalesque backdrop of Brits abroad. Director Isabel Coixet (The Bookshop) takes inspiration from producer Pedro Almodovar by creating a bold combination of deadpan reality and fantastical imagery in a tale about everything – and nothing.

‘It Snows in Benidorm’ is in UK & Ireland cinemas on August 19

Fadia’s Tree Amnesty International Award

Fadia’s Tree’ was chosen for the Amnesty International Award for Best Feature Film at the Donostia – San Sebastián Human Rights Film Festival. Directed by visual artist Sarah Beddington, Fadia’s Tree is a documentary about a Palestinian woman in a refugee camp in Lebanon who yearns for the ancestral homeland she’s denied in stark contrast to the millions of birds that migrate freely in the skies. She sets a challenge to the director to find an ancient tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence. With only inherited memories, a sightless man and a two-headed dragon as guides, this is no easy quest.
This story of a 15-year friendship that stays connected across a divided land and a fragmented people, adopts the aerial perspective of migratory birds to reflect on freedom of movement, exile and the hope of return.

GVFilm worked closely with the director and Over The Fence Films to craft the trailer for festivals and beyond to spread Fadia’s story to the wider world.
