How Rabbits came to Lift-Off
Rabbits first screened with Lift-Off at our First-Time Filmmakers Showcase at our home, Pinewood Studios. The Lift-Off team and other attendees were extremely impressed with this directorial debut from Alex Alexandrou, which saw Rabbits pick up a further screening at London Lift-Off Film Festival. Following the festival Rabbits received a Season Award Nomination. Fast forward six months, and Rabbits was announced as the Best First-Time Film of 2018.
We are taking Alex’s short to seek sale agent representation/potential distribution opportunities. Alex’s main goal is to make connections and build relationships with these industry professionals, not only for Rabbits, but for all of his future projects.
