The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, located in the northeastern corner of Alaska, is one of the wildest places left on the planet - a symbol of wilderness that few have ever seen. The Arctic is vast, wild and untouched, where some of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles unfold.
The release of the trailer is accompanied by an online campaign on www.protectthearctic.org/ and @ProTheArctic on Twitter to create awareness for a looming catastrophe; and to show measures that could be put into place to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
The Refuge is one of the last places on Earth exempt from human impact; and while it has been a haven for hundreds of different plant-, animal and fish species, it’s under attack as the American government is following plans to extract oil from this part of the Arctic.
The film features an extensive education program to extend learning off screen and into homes and classrooms worldwide. ‘Arctic: Our Last Great Wilderness’ will reach online and local communities through an innovative and strategic engagement campaign to raise awareness about the fragile beauty of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

"It’s always a pleasure to work with Onsight and they delivered an exceptional service on BULL. The film has really benefited from the attention to detail Jeff and the team gave it, for which I thank them.” - Dominic Tighe, Producer
Bafta award-winning director Paul Andrew Williams (London To Brighton) has written and directed Tea Shop Production’s BULL. Producers are Dominic Tighe (A Confession), Signature’s Marc Goldberg (Final Score) and Sarah Gabriel (Kidnap), and Tea Shop Productions’ Leonora Darby (A Banquet) and Mark Lane (47 Meters Down).
Bull will premiere at the London Film Festival as part of the 21 world premieres in the feature programme, The feature will play both at cinemas in London and UK-wide at 10 LFF partner venues, with select virtual premieres also hosted on the BFI Player online platform.
The film follows a former gang enforcer named Bull who mysteriously returns home after a 10-year absence to seek revenge on those who double-crossed him all those years ago.
He is in search of his son and the truth about what happened to him. On his journey to finding Aiden, we flashback to ten years before and start to piece together a series of events that leads to a dramatic and inexplicable climax.
Dirty, gritting and dangerous Bull is a brutal revenge thriller. This world is full of characters who have taken the law into their own hands but even they can't keep control of a situation that has got rapidly out of control, and at the centre of it is Bull-and a father's love for his son-who will stop at nothing to make amends in the hope of a better future.
Paul Andrew Williams added: “Bull is a story I have wanted to tell for a while and, despite its violence, has a strong emotional pull with a father’s love for his son at the centre of it. I think we have made a really cracking film with two fearless central performances from Neil and David. We made this under exceptionally challenging circumstances during a worldwide pandemic, and I am very grateful for the commitment and hard work from all the cast and crew.”
Signature Entertainment has boarded international sales rights and UK distribution on revenge thriller Bull, starring Neil Maskell (Kill List) in the lead alongside David Hayman (Fisherman’s Friends).

‘Working with OnSight has been an absolute pleasure. They have supported the project from the very beginning and we couldn’t have made the film without them. They truly worked with us, we felt truly supported by OnSight throughout.’ Jasmin Morrison - Producer
From underground to Olympic sport; Boarders captures the rich culture of the British skate scene. Told through the lives of four British skateboarders as they aim to qualify for the Tokyo Games, where skateboarding will make its debut as an Olympic sport.
With director Annika Ranin, Sean Fee and produced by Annika Ranin and Jasmin Morrison from UnMannered Limited. Boarders premiered at Genesis Cinema on July 16th London with International Sales by Urban Distribution International and Reservoir Docs. The film is being distributed by Bohemia Media in the UK, it is now available on iTunes, Sky Store and the Bohemia Euphoria platform.
Filmed over a period of 12 months, Boarders documents a historical moment in time with skateboarding heading to the Olympics and looks under the surface to discuss what it is like to be a professional skateboarder; with bigger competitions and more money entering the sport, the stakes are higher for everyone involved.
Boarders is a character focused film digging deep into the journeys of a group of British skateboarders who are vying for a spot to represent their country at the pivotal arena of elite sportsmanship, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, where skateboarding will make its debut as a competition sport. Starring: Sam Beckett, Alex Hallford, Jordan Thackeray, Alex deCunha
However, a key talking point within the skateboarding community has been whether the Olympics and the influx of commercial interest it brings will dilute the core values of the culture. With archive footage covering 6 decades of British skateboarding, Boarders looks at the various waves of popularity that skateboarding has undergone and introduces a strong look and feel of what skate culture is in the UK.
Boarders is visual and distinct in its style - after all skateboarding’s rise to the timeless status could not have happened without photography and film.
