Billy the Kid had it’s cast and crew screening at the BFI in May. Soon after, it was an official selection at the Oscar and BAFTA Qualifying 'Palm Springs Shortfest'. Being our World Premiere and all, half the crew decided to crusade over to America. Such is our commitment to the growth of British cinema.
Palm Springs is an amazing place, and an amazing festival – one of the top ten in America. We saw some really high calibre films, and met some incredibly talented filmmakers (invariably these two things are linked!). The festival also threw parties nightly, which was a brilliant (and exhausting) touch.
To cap things off, Billy was one of the Audience ‘BEST OF FEST’ picks. With 300+ amazing films in the festival, this was a huge honour.
