Electric Man has been selected for the prestigious San Diego Comic Con International Film Festival on July 13th
– and is the only UK feature film to play at the world famous comic convention this year. Selection for San Diego Comic Con places the film with the industry big hitters. Director David Barras explains:
“This is a game changer for us. We had already planned for digital distribution later in the year but we were going to limit that to the UK. Comic Con is enormous and we're now looking to give the film a global launchpad.”
The movie was selected as only one of three feature films to play this year's festival from over 200 initial entries.
"As a small independent movie we have to pick and choose where we go. But San Diego was the holy grail for us. Yes, it has blown a massive hole in the budget but we would be mad not to go. Who wouldn't want to be at the same convention as Iron Man 3 and the new Superman movie?"
Cinema goers in London will have the opportunity to see for themselves what all the fuss is about on Sunday 8th July, when the film plays at The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Place
. The film has already played to a sold out audience at the cinema in May but the team are bring it back to coincide with the London Film and Comic Con and give the capital's movie goers a sneak peak before they fly to California for the film's big night at Comic Con.
Director David Barras will be joined by members of the cast, the writer and the composer to introduce the film and take part in a Q & A. If you can't make it down on the night, you can also tweet your questions in advance to @electricmanfilm
