Earlier this year we did some design work for the premiere of Land Gold Women; a feature film tackling the controversial and emotive subject of honour killings. The premiere was organised by Rewired PR and held at Cineworld in Birmingham – the perfect location as the film was shot here in Brum.
We’ve just learned that Land Gold Women has won the FCA (Foreign Correspondents Association) Purple Orchid Award for Best Film, and was a joint winner in the Best Script/Screenplay category at the 2009 Asian Festival of First Films which took place in Singapore at the beginning of December. Fantastic news!
It’s heartening that such challenging and, for want of a better word, plucky film-making is going on here in Birmingham; and even better that it’s won such positive international recognition.
