We've had a fantastic run since closing the crowdfunding journey - first finishing the post production on our film and then enjoying two incredible screenings at the BFI London Film Festival. We had an amazing night at the Southbank BFI and at Hackney Picturehouse. The audience was warm and generous - we could not have been blessed with a more auspicious start!

Since the screenings we've been busy getting our act together to deliver the first set of perks to our very special backers. We've also been working on a website for our film where our film's festival journey can be tracked:

For now we are on tenterhooks to see which festivals will champion the story of the Mercury 13.
