After winning at Manchester Film Festival, the Wait For Me Film has now secured a UK-Ireland theatrical deal, which has been covered in this article by ScreenDaily.
The UK-based Munro Film has purchased the distribution rights to Wait For Me, the first full-length film from UK-based director Keith Farrell.
This summer, on June 2, Munro will open Wait For Me in theatres, with filmmaker and cast events for local audiences in Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, and Lincolnshire, where the movie was shot.
It follows Jane Gull’s Love Without Walls, which was acquired by Bulldog Film Distribution, as the second Manchester Film Festival winner to obtain distribution in the previous week.
The movie centres on two outsiders who become entangled in the criminal underground and attempt to replace their lost families by starting new lives elsewhere.
Cast members include Karen Hassan, Sean McGinley, Elva Trill, Neil Bell, Rebecca Atkinson, and Theo Ogundipe. Bernard O’Toole wrote the script.
Frank Smith, the managing director of Munro Film, states in the article that “Our priority has always been, and remains theatrical releasing,” along with Douglas who states “We are thrilled that Wait For Me has pushed through and resonated with audiences,”
