Following a great beginning to our screening journey in 2020, Riptide continues to play at festivals worldwide. 2021 has seen the film awarded Best Narrative Feature at Beyond The Curve International Film Festival in Paris, and play at Ramsgate and Argenteuil, with Screenplay in Shetland, Inverness and St Andrew’s festivals coming up later this year.

Riptide opens in London

Posted: October 18, 2020 in Uncategorized
The film had a fantastic premiere at Genesis cinema, and the audience gave our indie schizophrenia love story a brilliant reception. Massive thanks to owner Tyrone Walker-Hebborn for bringing the film to his cinema. A privilege to see Riptide for the first time publicly on a cinema screen, and experience the film as it was intended to be experienced.
Cast member David Whitney joined writer / director Tim Barrow for the Q&A, and special guest Sameer Jauhar provided an illuminating insight into his work with schizophrenia – its manifestations, causes and treatment, and inspiring tales of recovery.
Due to Covid, probably the last cinema screening until 2021, then we’ll tour the film as widely as possible.

On Wednesday 7th October, Riptide screens in London at the fantastic Genesis cinema – voted London’s top cinema by Time Out.

The screening starts at 6:30pm and will be introduced by Writer / Director Tim Barrow. A post-showing Q&A features Tim and David Whitney from the cast, plus special guest Sameer Jauhar, Consultant Psychiatrist in Early Intervention in Psychosis, South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust, and Senior Research Fellow, King’s College, London.

Poster for “Riptide”

Hallo people. Hope you’re taking good care, staying safe, and enjoying great movies online. It’s a tough time, and restrictions make everyday living a challenge for us all, not to mention the issues with work, finances, bills etc etc. But this time will pass. There is hope and wonder to be found. And always new films to be made, distributed, watched, discussed.
To that end, we’ve been planning our screening schedule for “Riptide”, now the film is complete. Looks like the second half of 2020 will be busy – more on that later.
But our brilliant designer Robbie Jones has been working away and we’re now thrilled to unveil the film poster!

We are adding it to media platforms, and then will be displaying it at festivals and cinemas as we tour our film later this year and beyond. Cannot wait!
Stay safe, beautiful people.

2020 and beyond

Posted: January 2, 2020 in Uncategorized

As we move into our third decade of film-making. it’s worth reflecting on an amazing journey so far – The Inheritance (2007), The Space Between (2013), Riptide (2019) – which will screen from 2020.

We celebrate the astonishing rewards of making films, and the incredible folk who’ve supported us, watched our films in festivals, cinemas, art galleries, record stores, cafes, observatories, theatres, who’ve bought DVDS, helped fund us, and shared inspiration, imagination, solidarity & hugs at the low points as well as the triumphs. Can’t wait to screen our third feature to audiences, and make more films, and collaborate with more extraordinary people as we roam through the 2020s.
