Dear Backers,

Last night at the Institute of Directors, iconic landmark of London’s Georgian heritage, there was a black tie dinner held in honor of the nominees for the 2017 Maritime Media Awards. This is an annual celebration acknowledging exceptional contributions to the understanding of maritime matters in the United Kingdom and beyond. 

Vanishing Sail is the winner the Donald Gosling Award for Best Television or Film! 

“An absolutely superb film, with all aspects of it perfectly balanced against each other – very like Exodus herself, as rewarding a maritime documentary as you could hope for.” Rob White Chair, The Maritime Foundation. 

We sincerely hope this official honour & recognition will inspire support for our film to be distributed and more importantly, help us develop more boatbuilding projects for the communities of Carriacou!

Next Screenings:

Nov 11 - Dartmouth, Devon, UK
Nov 14 & 15 - Plymouth, Devon, UK
Nov 24 - Falmouth, Cornwall, U.K.

With Thanks,
Alexis & Justin

      This is great news! I am happy to hear the film is receiving all these accolades. I am anxious for my opportunity to see it. Will you ever be screening it in or around Montreal, Canada?
