On Wednesday 21st October we had our London preview screening of Still Loved at Molinare, Soho, where we did our post production. They have a gorgeous cinema where we held the screening.
Our audience arrived at 6.30pm and we had a couple of drinks in the bar. Our guests consisted of two of the families in the film, Beth and Steve Morris and Michelle and Paul Hemmington Buckley, some of our crew, sponsors and film industry and friends. It was a fantastic turn out.
At 7pm Director, Debbie Howard, introduced the film and the screening commenced.
The film was followed by an informal Q&A with our the families in the film, Editor Joby Gee and Debbie.
Afterwards we went back to the bar and had more conversations about the film. We asked people to fill out feedback forms, as we did at our Sheffield screening, and we got some brilliant feedback and comments.
“This is a beautiful and touching film about grief, full of humanity. For everyone who has ever or will ever lose somebody….for everyone.”
“I thought it was literally spectacular – every element, from the awe inspiring exposure and honesty of the participants to the pace, music, sensitivity and the father’s stories….a magnificent spectacle. Privileged to have watched it.”
“This is a film that will resonate most with men and you should ty to find a way to market it to them. It seems they are the hidden/forgotten victims and would really benefit from hearing other men in a similar situation.”
It was great to hear from both families that took part that they had not found it too harrowing to watch, and had really enjoyed the experience of taking part and watching the film.
“Amazingly powerful. A difficult watch but then, I am reliving (again) the worst day of my life. I am very impressed and would really urge everyone to watch this!”
Debbie was amused that both our Editor, Joby Gee and herself had arrived wearing fox print fabrics totally unplanned. So here they are….looking foxy!
Thank you to everyone that came along and supported us, and who have helped us get this film made. And a massive thank you to Molinare for hosting our screening and doing such a wonderful job of post production.
“Beautifully moving and congratulations for handling a very taboo and sensitive subject in a compelling and open/honest manner without being ‘too teary’. Should definitely be watched by all.”
Christine Hartland, Producer, Patchwork Productions.
“I thought your film was amazing – beautifully paced and very moving.”
