7. Films: Louisa & Winters Ridge
Winters Ridge: Nothing has been organised yet for a premier in Lynton which is why you don’t know about it. The sales agents for the film have changed recently. The folk that Winter Ridge are using are the biggest distributor in America. Nothing can happen without their say so and their efforts have been focused in the USA first of all. The film was sold in Germany and China by the previous agents.
We do plan to have a screening in Lynton once all the deals are sorted out but nothing can be considered until all the international stuff is sorted.
Believe me you will be consulted as soon as possible once the options for a local premier are discussed.
