Since its LOCO Film Festival UK premiere at the BFI, it’s been exciting couple of months for Set The Thames On Fire. It’s been announced as an official selection at a number of prestigious film festivals in both the UK and USA, and then had its UK theatrical and digital release confirmed!
Set The Thames On Fire first appeared on the festival circuit with a ‘work in progress screening’ at Raindance Festival, and since then it’s had much acclaimed premiere screenings at both the Palm Springs International Film Festival and LOCO London Comedy Film Festival.
Straight after the LOCO screening the film made a short trip across the Irish Sea, where it was screened as an official selection of the 16th Belfast Film Festival. The Guardian’s write up of this year’s festival suggested “just about everything worth seeing, that’s not coming to a multiplex, is on offer.” Can’t argue with that.
