MULTILINGUAL VERSIONS OF SLAVA’S JOURNEY
Well, this has to be quite an ‘update’!
We’ve been very busy during the Coronavirus lockdown – as well as growing our hair and binge eating, we have been toiling away on the final stages of the film.
This has been almost constant work, but now we can announce we have:
A RUSSIAN VERSION OF THE FILM
A FRENCH VERSION OF THE FILM
A SPANISH VERSION OF THE FILM
GETTING THE FILM INTO THE WORLD
We are also negotiating with an aggregator to get the film out on major platforms – iTunes/Apple TV; Amazon Prime; and Google Play. This process should take around 3 months after we submit the film.
Before we do that, we need to meet the incredibly precise technical requirements, particularly with captions.
Shakespeare wrote “There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.” Well, this is very true about those ‘final stages’!
We’ve also been very busy submitting the film to festivals. We lost a lot of money submitting to brick-and-mortar festivals, which of course were closed due to coronavirus. BUT we have been applying to virtual festivals, and are delighted to announce we have amassed 8 sets of laurels!

In April 2018 we screened a rough cut at the highly prestigious MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, April 2018!
Nikita Mikhalkov, the President of the Moscow Film Festival, really loved the ”wonderful, wonderful” film, as did the audience.
The audience also seemed to like our inadvertently clownish Question and Answer session after the film.
