Sleep Furiously wins The Guardian's Best First Film Award

Hot off the press, the news that Sleep Furiously, Gideon Koppel's meditation on life in a remote village in mid-Wales  has beaten close runner-up Katalin Varga to win The Guardian's First Film Award. 

Get the full lowdown here.

Sleep Furiously screens at four Flicks in the Sticks venues - Brilley, Ross, Ledbury and Eye - between Saturday 27 February and Friday 5 March.

The show at Brilley (fittingly remote itself) is part of a double bill with The Grocer's Son, another film about rural life,  with sustenance in the form of a Ploughman's Supper (Welsh cheese, French bread plus Bar) on sale in between the two.

We hope that director Gideon Koppel or his producer, Margaret Matheson, will be able to attend one of the screenings.

Katalin Varga plays at The Courtyard Hereford on Sunday 28 February, Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 March.
