    Dear Jeanie,

    Your film, SOUND IT OUT, was recommended to us and we would like to review it for possible inclusion in the 2011 Tallgrass Film Festival coming this October.

    Now in its ninth year, the Tallgrass Film Festival is dedicated to entertaining and enlightening audiences from America’s heartland by showcasing the very best in independent cinema. This year’s festival is October 20-23.

    We are eager to review your film so I will waive the submission fees. Please send us two DVD preview screeners (NTSC format, please) of your film. Our online submission form is at:

    When you sign up on Withoutabox, you will need to indicate that you have a Special Fee Waiver. It will ask you three things. Here are your answers:
    Who Granted Waiver: Nick Pope
    Reason for Waiver: Invited
    Waiver Password: SABNMZF

    Wichita is a unique venue for showcasing independent film. Not only is it in the center of the country, offering the Mid-western demographic, but many of the best independent films, even with distribution, never make it here. Tallgrass provides this opportunity for filmmakers.

    Our program creates an environment where attendees are excited and hungry for quality programming. Check out our website for more information about the 2011 festival as well as what past guests and filmmakers have said about their experiences during the Midwest’s fastest growing film festival.

    The deadline for entries is in July, but we are looking to lock our program early and would appreciate your response at your earliest convenience.

    I hope to hear from you soon,


    Nick Pope
    Co-Director of Programming
    Tallgrass International Film Festival

    Well I never, 12 months ago sound it out was shown and invited to a festival. Now I watch it twice in a row, because I can, because it was on freeview, which I did not even have then. Our local store is still going, a friend wants to get rid of his eclectic counter cultural collection but the local store only pays a pittance for goods in, while Led Zep2 (my favorite album cover) is £10 in the pimped up charity shop, with his collection that would be 4k!, meanwhile he is getting into crooners of all things, how the world does turn? We are going to see Chantalle McGregor at the Robin2, in Bilston in the Midlands UK December 12th 2012, if anywhere needed a record store its the Robin, see you there!

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
