Warmest hello to all our backers! 

I hope Spring has sprung and you all enjoyed a lovely Easter. This is quick update to let you know that The Purple Plain enjoyed a fantastic reception at CATE - Cinema at the Edge Festival in Santa Monica and at the Talkies in London at a Women in Shorts event just a few weeks back. In fact our Talkies event went so well we have been invited screen again and this time as a companion piece to the fantastic Hidden Figures.

And finally we recently heard amazing news from SCINEMA which means we will be screening in Australia in June. 

We'll keep you posted! Let us know if there are any festivals near you that you'd like us to consider sharing The Purple Plain at.

Night night my lovely people!
