Believe Golden Eye Award Fresh back from the 9th Zurich Film Festival - 'Believe' directed by David Scheinmann, brings home the GOLDEN EYE award in the Kids Film Category.

Believe Zurich Film Festival

The award came from votes from 2,500 children and parents who came to see the film. With an average of 2.88 points from an available 3 points score... 'Believe' won by a landslide.

Even better - The audience watched the film in English with one live narrator reading all of the dialogue in German, whilst all the other films in the category were originally in German. A great result you'll all agree.

Here's the official trailer for those that haven't yet seen it. Please enjoy...

'Believe' in the Theatre of Dreams

Theatre of Dreams Believing in dreams is a very important concept within the narrative of 'Theatre of Dreams'. Which is why the title has been changed to 'Believe' to best reflect the film.

We finished the newly titled sequence which we also created the off-screen branding for, only last week in time for today's world premier screening in Santa Monica, California. Producer Manuela Noble, who is co-hosting today's event with Gary Smith of Intandem Films, told us "We had to change the title because people who didn't know what Theatre of Dreams was, thought the film had something to do with the theatre, maybe Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and that it sounded 'high brow', which is the last thing we wanted".

AMC Screenings and Soho House West Hollywood Screening Room

Today's event is for the US buyers and tomorrow sees another screening at Soho House, West Hollywood. With next week rolling on for AFM (American Film Market) screenings at the AMC Santa Monica, Manuela went on to tell us "This is a film for everyone, with themes that effect us all, it is for the whole family, young and old. So we chose a title that would speak to an international audience we hope to attract".

We wish Manuela and the team the very best from the next few days, and look forward to hearing a great response for a film we all 'believe' in.


Theatre of Dreams

We've scored another one in the back of the net! After our meeting and screening yesterday with producers Manuela Nobel and Ben Timlett. The whistle blew for full-time with us picking up the trophy for the title sequence for their new film 'Theatre of Dreams'. Theatre of Dreams

From the same camp that made 'A Liar's Autobiography', Bill (Jones) and Ben (Timlett) Productions and Written and directed by David Scheinmann. The film has been poised as 'Billy Elliot' meets 'Bend it Like Beckham', telling a warm family fictional tale of Matt Busby who helps a young boy fulfill his footballing dreams, whilst still overcoming the tragedy of Manchester United's Busby Babes plane disaster.

Newcomer to film 11 year old Jack Smith plays the young boy Georgie, having outplayed hundreds of hopefuls to win the lead role. He stars opposite Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) who plays Sir Matt and Natascha McElhone (The Truman Show) who plays his mum.
