Fresh on the back of our FIPRESCI Award, we have more good news. We’ve been selected for South by Southwest 2016! The screening at SXSW will be the film’s US premiere. SXSW is one of the most prestigious events on the film festival circuit and we are delighted that Bodkin Ras has be selected to screen as part of the festival.
Kaweh Modiri said: “Bodkin Ras received a very warm welcome at International Film Festival Rotterdam. The film is quite dark and is experimental in format, so we were delighted that the screenings were full and that the audience feedback was so positive. South by Southwest will be a really different experience and I’m keen to see how the SXSW audience responds. It’s known as a place for really fresh, innovative films and I think Bodkin Ras will be right at home there.”
South by Southwest is the perfect next step for us. The festival places high value on innovation and seeks out exciting films that challenge expectations. Bodkin Ras fulfils that criteria exactly, and we are looking forward to finding out how the SXSW audiences respond to our film.
The SXSW Film Conference and Festival runs March 11-19, 2016 in Austin. Screening dates and times are to be confirmed. Visit the SXSW website for details.
