British short film “Missing a Note” has secured its first theatrical release in the United States after getting a UK distribution deal earlier this year with Everyman Cinemas.
“Missing a Note” started playing this week in LA at the Landmark’s Nuart Theatre, where audiences will be able to see the award-winning film at the art house cinema during September and discover a charming story with some lighthearted humor.
The crowdfunded short is also reportedly being submitted for the 2020 Academy Awards that will help to raise its profile – highlighting the condition of dementia and its impact on people experiencing it a certain stage of the complex condition, which currently does not have a cure.
First time director Beth Moran, originally from Britain, managed to raise over $12,000 to go toward the film’s production which would help to raise awareness of British charity, Dementia Matters. The film went into production last year and was completed this summer. It features a cast of well known British actors including Game of Thrones star Ian McElhinney and actress-singer Elaine Paige OBE, who has an esteemed career in stage musicals.
Fact Not Fiction Films’ short film will also be screened in select theaters across the U.K. where it will be shown ahead of the eagerly anticipated “Downton Abbey” feature film which had its world premiere earlier this week.
“Missing a Note” is the latest short to be produced by Fact Not Fiction Films which is also behind the upcoming documentary “Everybody Flies” that will shed light on the impact of toxic fumes inside airplane cabins. The documentary took more than 4 years to make and contains never-before revealed insights into aviation, and the dangers of the air we breathe on aircraft.
