Glasgow Screening of 'The Gaelic King'

We at Fellowship Film are super excited to be collaborating with 'Blueprint - Scottish Independent Cinema' in a screening of The Gaelic King at the CCA, Glasgow on Tue 19th December at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available here: https://www.cca-glasgow.com/programme/blueprint-scottish-independent-cinema-the-gaelic-king

Here's how Blueprint describes our film:

The Gaelic King is an epic fantasy adventure with ambitions way beyond its modest production and aspires to Tolkien grandiosity fusing history and mythology in a compelling narrative. Written produced and directed by a team of five cousins Fellowship Film demonstrates once again the ambition and tenacity of Scottish filmmakers working without institutional support. The film has already secured international home media release with 4Digital Media and Blueprint is delighted to present it for the first time in a cinema.

Select cast and crew will be present for a post screening Q&A. Tickets are on sale now and priced £6.50 + £1 booking fee: https://ccaglasgow.ticketsolve.com/shows/873582174

‘The Gaelic King’ Release!

It has been an epic and exhilarating journey, but on Monday 10 July 2017 ‘The Gaelic King’ became available to buy on DVD in the UK! Many people pre-ordered their copy to be one of the first to own the film.

Other territories will follow soon and it will likely become available in North America next. Do get in touch if you would like to know when it will be available in your part of the world and we will tell you as soon as we know.

 

The Journey

Words are hopelessly inadequate to describe all that we - the Fellowship Film team - are feeling at this time. I’ll summarise as ‘gratitude’ and ‘hope’.

Gratitude for the amazing people that had faith in us right from the earliest days of fundraising for ‘Dalriata’s King’; gratitude for the incredible cast, crew and talent that gave their all to make this project a success, suffering long hours, bitter weather, and minimal remuneration; gratitude to God for putting this vision in our hearts and giving us the strength and courage to persevere; and eternal gratitude to everyone who has stood by us until this moment. So many have made huge sacrifices financially, in time and in energy. The best way we can express this gratitude is to work to make ‘The Gaelic King’ the success that they believed it could be right from the beginning. 

Hope that all this risk and sacrifice might really make a difference; hope that the world is about to see what the Scottish film industry is really made of; hope that our story can encourage others to pursue their passions and follow through on their dreams; hope that what comes next will be even more exciting!

 

What’s next?

The film has been sold to many territories around the world. Over the coming months ‘The Gaelic King’ should start becoming available in supermarkets, video stores, streaming services, and other online retailers. Our hope is that this will really make people sit up and think ‘if this can be done on a micro-budget, surely Scotland’s talent is capable of much more than we thought!’

Hopefully you will be excited to hear that we are already working intensively towards our next feature film project which we hope can be even higher quality and more revolutionary than ‘The Gaelic King’.

 

Can I help?

There are several very simple ways that you can make a huge difference:

  • Leave positive reviews on Amazon and IMDb after the release. This could have a landslide effect on sales:

Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gaelic-King-DVD-Jake-McGarry/dp/B0713YK7MF

IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5072852/?ref_=nv_sr_1

  • Buy the DVD. The benefits are obvious but at this stage it’s much less about sales and more about convincing the distributors that this is a product they should be taking notice of.
  • Share share share! If you are on social media, share the links to the DVD and IMDb. If you have friends who are interested in Scottish history, fantasy, film, adventure, or anything really, share and get them to share!

These things really do make a surprisingly significant impact.

400 Attended Cast & Crew Screening of The Gaelic King in Glasgow

The recent private screening at Cineworld was attended by over 400 cast, crew and supporters. The excitement was tangible in the air as we viewed together the pre-release 'Directors Cut' of The Gaelic King.

We, Fellowship Film, would like to send our thanks to ALL who attended, and a special shout out to the cast, crew and supporters who could not join us on the night.

We have received an overwhelming wave of messages expressing thanks, and it gave us the idea to create a 'Memory Wall' to allow you to publicly share a story from behind the scenes. Check it out here and leave a story!

Photos from the screening will be published on our Facebook page soon!

Official poster released - 'The Gaelic King' heads to AFM

'The Gael King' is going to be taken to the American Film Market next month! This is really happening!

Behold the official poster. You will notice that our sales agent requested it be sold in America under the name 'The Gaelic King' as 'Gaelic' is more recognisable than 'Gael'. We have made the decision to keep this constant in all regions.

Therefore, the film will now be known as 'The Gaelic King'. Thank you for your co-operation with this as we slowly but surely work towards making the film as successful as possible.
