It was great to take part in Sheffield Doc/Fest. The festival, which is the UK’s biggest documentary-only film festival, gets about 2,000 submissions. Of that, they screen about 150 films (but that includes interactive films, shorts and older films) and host 100 others in the Videotheque, then online for a 3 month period. So we are pretty pleased to be in that little pile!
So far we have got some great tweets and emails about TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND so here’s hoping it keeps getting out there and finds that audience we made it for!
Sheffield DocFest opens today and amazing streetart doc TAKING OVER THE KING’S LAND is on in the Videotheque throughout the festival.
If you are a delegate, please pull up a chair and have a look at the inspiring story of how an Egyptian artist tried to turn a condemned London housing estate into a giant artwork.

June 01 sees a screening for Taking Over the King’s Land in Exeter, Devon!
The film will be playing at PUNY GODS! Vs The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum. The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum is one of the UK’s largest collection of material related to the moving image and has strong links with the BFI. There will be a great selection of award winning films screening and a selection of talks by film-makers and film studies academics from the University of Exeter.
This is going to be really fun. More details coming
