Awful Silence Premiere
Our psychological thriller ‘Awful Silence’ recently had its world premiere at the Odeon Leeds/ Bradford cinema. We are proud of the cast and crew for working so hard to bring this film to the screen. It was especially heartening to see all of the local talent receive immense praise and accolade for their performances in the film – including our leading lady Megan Paul, lead male Quentin Jones and the multi-talented Liam Wetherall.
The packed audience praised the themes we tackled in the film around loss and mental health. Our aim with most of our films is to create conversation around serious topics that need wider attention.
The film has been picked up by an American Sales Agent so please look out for it at a theatre or streaming platform soon.
