    We have heard great things about the film, “Sound It Out” and were wondering if we might be able to recieve a screener for our selection committee to review (on DVD – US Region 0 or 1 or VHS-NTSC).

    The Boulder International Film Festival has developed international recognition as a showcase for the best new films by some of today’s most important filmmakers. Last year, BIFF was named one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” by Movie Maker Magazine. An exceptional number of new feature films, documentaries and shorts have gone from early screenings at the BIFF to significant box office success and multiple Oscar nominations. Over 17,000 filmmakers, media, special guests and film enthusiasts attended BIFF 2011, along with Academy Award-winning Director Oliver Stone and Academy Award-nominated actor and Oscar host James Franco. Next February, during 4 days of screenings, workshops, panels and parties, BIFF 2012 will again unveil some of the best new films in international cinema.

    The address to send the screener is below. Also, please let us know if the film will be screening in Colorado or if it will be shown on TV before the Festival in February.

    With Thanks,

    What a great film – very funny and moving and you certainly struck gold with some of the regulars. Looks great too.

    Saw it on a Virgin Atlantic plane 2 weeks ago (I hope you know).

    OK, I was a captive audience but how come I never heard about this masterpiece when it came out?

    Needless to say I thought it was absolutely magnificent. In fact, I keep on thinking about the characters and scenes weeks after. Always the sign of a good film.

    You’d have to have a heart of stone if you don’t hope the shop gets a lifeline out of it.

    Looking forward to seeing anything else Jeanie’s working on.

    Hi Simon,

    Great to hear. We’re really happy to be showing on Virgin – we’ve had some great feedback.

    We did a national tour, national press, TV and radio so I’m not sure why you didn’t know about us. Always nice to be surprised though eh!

    Do join our mailing list to be kept update on future projects.

    And do visit the shop if you’re ever in Stockton, it’s doing well.

    all best.

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.
