Sandgrains News

  • Sandgrains on

    Many articles have been published about Sandgrains lately. Now also Cape Verde is finally taking an interest. We're hoping to get the documentary screened by the national Cape Verdian broadcaster and hopefully cinemas and festivals, we're working on it but things go slow.

    In the meantime here is an article published by a site on Cape Verdian news, culture and entertainment. Thanks to Susana S. Duarte for the interest and making this possible, this article gave a nice push to the film in the country most of the footage has been coming from.

  • Sandgrains on La Repubblica

    The story and trailer of Sandgrains have gone live on, Italy's major national newspaper. Flavia Cappadocia has made this possible by posting the trailer and few words just before our Italian premiere on the 15th of November.
    The trailer has until now had more than 16.000 views, and counting.
    This article, together with the premiere of the film in Bologna, have made so that the project has gone around a lot and we also got quite a few orders of dvds and downloads.

  • First Prize at Docunder30

    We're happy to announce that Sandgrains has been awarded the first prize at DocUnder30, a documentary film festival in Forli' (IT) dedicate to young talent.

    Thanks to Angelita Fiore for the invite and for supporting us until the end.
    The Jury's reasons for the first prize have been:

  • Sandgrains on Sale!

    Last night Sandgrains went on sale on our website, this is what we woke up to this morning...
    After more than 4 years of production, Sandgrains is finally also available to the general public!!!

    You can get it as HD Download, Dvd, Bluray and you can now book a commercial Screening License.


  • Distribution with Motion Pictures

    This news comes a little late, but since beginning of August we have signed a contract for broadcast distribution of Sandgrains.
    After the Spring and Summer festival season we decided to close a deal with Motion Pictures, a Spanish distribution company.

    We gave Montse Portabella, head of the documentary department, the exclusive worldwide right to distribute our film to broadcasters, and we believe we have made an excellent choice. Already two deals have been signed off in Spain and Ireland, and she is in talks for more!

    This means we can finally relax a little and let professionals do what they know best. Dealing with contracts, buyers, delivery of materials and such is not in our hands anymore, and we can finally just sit back and wait to receive memo deals for our final approval!

    We still retain online, dvd, educational and theatrical distribution rights, which we'll give out on a non exclusive basis.
