Got an exclusive intro for our UK DVD release of THE DETECTIVE, from director Oxide Pang - just doing the subtitles for it right now!
Working on the subtitling for The Detective - a nice relaxing task for Sunday evening!!!
Already in full production and hoping to get a look at our UK version release by end of this coming week.
Will be working with two great agencies - Silversun on the authoring and What is Bobo for our artwork (will post some of the artwork on our site a bit later).
End of another good week at Terracotta and we are making great strides with both the Festival in May and with Terracotta's release of SPARROW and THE DETECTIVE.
More cinema's have expressed an interest now in SPARROW and we have some very good original UK poster art, and a very special collector edition, more on which we can tell you about next month.
Ended a powerful week with a dinner in Spitalfields Market with the Terracotta PR & Marketing team where we hatched a plan to attend Berlin Film Festival next month - our first time! There's increasing number of Asian films and industry members there now, so it's definitely worth going.
We also confirmed this week, another screening venue for our ever growing MeetUp group - Barrio Central, Poland St. London. Barrio decor and happy hour beers and cocktails, with a large bar and screening area downstairs. Perfect!

We are delighted to share with you, via our festival blog (both available to read on www.TerracottaDistribution.com and www.TerracottaFestival.com), the fantastic news that airline company KLM will be the Official Airline Sponsor for Terracotta Festival 2011.
We welcome KLM to our family of sponsors and look forward to working with the KLM UK Marketing & PR teams in the coming months.
Festival goers can look forward, in May, to meeting a range of actors, directors and producers from Asia, who have travelled to London for Terracotta Festival 2011, courtesy of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
Terracotta Festival 2011 will take place at the Prince Charles Cinema, London 5th - 8th May 2011.
An official press release will be out this week.
finding it hard to find an oustanding selection of films to count on one hand for 2010 let alone programme an entire festival. must mine deeper.
still, i have a large pile of things to watch.
so far, only been impressed by THE PIANO IN A FACTORY in last couple of weeks from what we have seen- reminds of THE FULL MONTY in that workers in a soon to close steel factory over come the odds to do something totally different and life affirming. the parallels end there of course - no nude chinese male working class heroes in this film!
only six more weeks till submissions close and another eight weeks before we start to put the programme together. time to find a few more films!
well, what could be a better way to round off our year than the news that we are about to sign with an airline sponsor for Terracotta Festival 2011, and that we are in the midst of designing a great product configuration for SPARROW for the UK to make it a really collectible edition.
you heard it here first!
merry christmas and wishing you lots of good things for 2011!
