  • When the audience produces a film

    Here an extract from this article by our online distributors in Germany.

    "The intention of the documentary could not be more in harmony with it's whole evolution, for it is a film which denounces the environmental effects of global fishing. And it's success as a film is true thanks to the will and confidence of many different people who put their money into it."  Clara Rodríguez A.

  • VoD and Educational Distribution

    Sandgrains can now also be found on Video On Demand and as educational resource for universities and schools.
    We recently closed a deal with Realeyz, a Germen distribution platform.
    You can now stream and dowload-to-own our documentary on the Realeyz website, or buy a copy with educational rights at Realeyz E-Learning website.
    Thanks to Patricie Pouzarova for setting this up!

    If you are a student, teacher or professsor at a school or university, and would like to have Sandgrains in your video library, put in a request to get an educational copy and help us distribute the documentary to as many people as possible. Thanks!

  • 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.

  • Sheffield Doc/Fest - Videotheque Selection

    Another documentary film festival, another market catalogue selection for Sandgrains!
    This time it's Sheffield Doc/Fest where our documentary had been selected 2 years ago at the crowdfunding pitch.

    Jordie is attending this major festival in the UK to continue developing contacts with distributors and broadcasters and to make a final decision on how to insert the documentary into the international market.
    Meeting friends, attending master classes and panel discussions, dancing alongside film commissioners and buyers. This festival is one of the most important in Europe.

    Here a picture with Rob Mitchel, great festival buddy met in Krakow and here again!

  • Krakow Film Market

    Here some more exciting news from Sandgrains!
    From the 26th of May until the 2nd of June the film will be at the Krakow Film Market, the industry section of the Krakow Film Festival!
    We will be soon traveling to Poland!!!
    Jordie is going to promote the film to Central and Eastern European broadcasters and distribution agents.
    Anyone around that is attending as well?
    Looking forward to meet you at the networking drinks with a nice polish beer in our hand :-)

  • Visions du Réel

    We have been invited to list Sandgrains in the Media Library of the Visions du Réel Documentary Film Festival in Switzerland. This event is one of the major documentary film markets in Europe and even though we have not been selected to screen the film at the actual festival we are very hopeful that the room dedicated to the Doc Outlook Market, where commissioners and buyers can watch a list of 350 noteworthy documentaries, can lead to something interesting.
    The festival runs from the 19th until the 26th of April in Nyon, on the shores of Lake Geneve and Jordie will be going to represent Matchbox.
    Here you can check out the page the festival has dedicated to our project.
