Backyard at CPH:DOX

Backyard visited Copenhagen in November and was part of the great CPH:DOX film festival. It competed in the Sound & Vision category of the festival. To our suprise it got a prize, not the main prize though, and a special mention by the good people of Denmark. Now we can place this olive branch thingy on our website and cover of the DVD and such.

The great musical road movie Seperado got first prize and it really good and deserves all good. So we don’t feel that sorry about getting only this special mention thing.

Backyard will have special Iceland Airwaves screenings during the the festival and some nice events too. Both a good deal on ticket prices for festival goers and a rare chance to see and meet the stars of the film, in the FLESH. The film is shown with English subtitles, like always, and in glorious stereo and millions of colours+.
