BIG BOYS GONE BANANAS!* will have its UK festival premiere this week – the film is screening at Sheffield Doc/Fest on June 14th and 16th and Fredrik Gertten will be present for Q&A's following both screenings – find details and tickets here.
On Friday 15th June, Fredrik is also part of a panel called Story Leads to Action at Sheffield Doc/Fest, discussing how to reach target audiences with help from NGOs and corporate brands.
If you’re not in Sheffield, don’t despair - Fredrik will come to London for a Masterclass at the Frontline Club on Wednesday June 20th, followed by a preview screening and Q&A at theCurzon Soho on Thursday 21st of June.
This London Q&A will also have two very special guests - stars of the film Sven Hughes and Tim Burt will join Fredrik on stage:
Sven Hughes is a strategic communications advisor and founder of the world’s first dedicated verbalisation agency. His current and former clients include Prime Ministers, CEOs, militaries and royal households. Sven argues for increased legislation within the commercial stratcoms industry.
Tim Burt is Managing Director of StockWell, which he joined from Brunswick, the international advisory firm, where he oversaw sectors including media, technology and automotive. Tim was formerly an award-winning journalist at the Financial Times, where he spent 16 years in several senior editorial roles.
We finish off our UK mini-tour with a bang!
As we have blogged about before, we are very proud to be part of the Good Pitch Europe 2012, being held in London the 25th of June. The Good Pitch brings together filmmakers with NGO's, foundations, philantropists, brands and media around leading social issues to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for the partners, the films and good for society. We will be pitching to hopefully raise some much-needed outreach funding for Big Boys Gone Bananas!*. You can read about the other selected projects here.
Do join us at these screenings in the UK and please share with your friends!
