Film Production: Wilderness (Doherty, 2017)

2017CreativeWith post-production finished in December 2016, and cast and crew screenings complete, the DCP was finalised in January 2017 and Wilderness, a feature film written and produced by Neil Fox and directed by his long time collaborator Justin John Doherty over 13 days in the spring of 2016, started its festival run.

The world premiere took place in March 2017 at the Cinequest International Film Festival in California, with the European premiere a few weeks later at Ireland’s Dingle Film festival in April, and the UK premiere at the Empire Leicester Square as opening film of the London Independent Film Festival, where Katharine Davenport won Best Actress. It’s since picked up awards at the Chain Film Festival in New York for Best International Feature, Best Feature Screenplay, Best Music and Best Ensemble.

An incredible achievement for all involved.
