Love, friendship and streaking comes to digital 8th February 2021 with Running Naked

Making its UK Premiere on World Cancer Day, Running Naked is a wonderful new British feature from Emmy winning director Victor Buhler (Rikers High, The Negotiators), that's guaranteed to make you laugh and cry.

A story with cancer at its heart - yet so very much more, the film stars Matthew McNulty (The Terror, Misfits) and Andrew Gower (The Village, Being Human) as two friends who bond during their teenage cancer treatment and become lifelong buddies... but must face a challenge that leads to a life-changing adventure.

Filmed on location in Stoke on Trent, Manchester and Wolverhampton, Running Naked had its World Premiere at the Beijing Film Festival, to a rapturous response, and is now set for its UK premiere on 4th February 2021, with its digital release on 8th February 2021 courtesy of Now Films with a portion of all profits donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and Weston Park Hospital.

When Ben (Gower) and Mark (McNulty) meet in hospital while undergoing leukaemia treatment, they become inseparable. Their wild boyish pranks on the ward may drive the doctors to distraction but it helps take their minds off their precarious state of health.

Skip forward 20 years and their lives have taken different directions... Mark has forged a successful career as a doctor, while Ben is in a dead-end job with debilitating obsessive tendencies. But they have always maintained their friendship and never fail to meet for their regular catch ups. When Mark receives some shocking news, he's forced to re-evaluate his life and the two men embark on an adventure. As their exploits grow more dramatic, a secret Mark has been hiding comes to light and forces Ben to question everything he knows.

Written by Victor Buhler, Jennifer Knowles and Michael Knowles, the story is a heartfelt and moving tale that draws on Jennifer Knowles' personal experience as a cancer survivor, that balances humour, emotion and drama in equal measure. In a world where cancer affects so many lives Running Naked brings a positive and hopeful message to everyone and anyone whose life has been touched by the disease.




Host, universally acclaimed lockdown horror hit from director Rob Savage, gets a Limited Edition Blu-ray release 22 February 2021

Lockdown horror hit, the hair-raising Host from director Rob Savage (Britannia, Soulmates) invites you to join the most chilling Zoom call ever made, as a demonic presence haunts a group of friends in a quarantine catch-up call gone horribly wrong. Fans of the affectingly contemporary, universally acclaimed Shudder Original film can expect a special feature packed Limited Edition Box Set release from Second Sight Films on 22 February 2021.

Six friends get together during lockdown for their weekly video call. It's Haley's (Haley Bishop - Angel has Fallen, Deep State) turn to organise an activity and instead of a quiz, she's arranged for a medium to conduct a seance.

Bored and feeling mischievous, Jemma (Jemma Moore - Wonder Woman, Doom: Annihilation) decides to have some fun and invents a story about a boy in her school who hanged himself. However, her prank gives license for a demonic presence to cross over, taking on the guise of the boy from the made-up story. The friends start to notice strange occurrences as the evil presence begins to make itself known in their homes... will they get to leave the meeting unscathed or will it be the end for them all?

'A well-crafted, anxiety-inducing thrill-ride'

Clementine, a taut, atmospheric drama on love and letting go arrives on digital 8 February 2021

CLEMENTINE is the critically acclaimed feature film debut from one-to-watch writer/director Lara Jean Gallagher, who has drawn comparisons to Jane Campion (Slant Magazine). Making waves upon its premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival, this taut, atmospheric drama is now set for its premiere in the UK from Bohemia Media.

Equal parts tense psychological drama and sexual coming-of-age story, CLEMENTINE sees a heartbroken woman become entangled with a younger girl after breaking into her ex's remote lake house in the Pacific Northwest.

Struggling to come to terms with her devastating break-up from girlfriend D, Karen (Otmara Marrero - Start-up, Vandal, Miss Arizona), drives to a remote cabin in the woods where they spent much of their relationship and, craving the closeness she once had with the love of her life, she breaks in and decides to stay.

When the fresh-faced, care-free Lana (Sydney Sweeney - Euphoria, Sharp Objects, The Handmaid's Tale), turns up searching for her lost dog, Karen feels like her solitude has been interrupted, but with Lana's persistence the pair begin to form a closeness.

'Unspools like a dream... an exploration of the shifting power in relationships with striking images and overtones of duality'

An Indie ode to female friendship & London life, Hurt By Paradise arrives on digital 8 February 2021

Described as the British Francis Ha, Hurt By Paradise is a heartfelt love letter to female friendship and London, from first time writer/director Greta Bellamacina, who also takes the lead. Premiering at Edinburgh Film Festival and screening at Cannes Film Festival in 2019 to critical acclaim, it now arrives on digital on 8 February 2021 courtesy of Patriot Films.

With its strong indie credentials, this British arthouse film will capture audience's hearts and minds. It shines a light on the trials and tribulations of being a young, single mother living in London, exploring the hardships, but always with a sense of humour.

Actor and poet Greta Bellamacina takes the lead as Celeste - a young poet and single mother, trying to make her way in London. We follow her comedically unsuccessful attempts to get her first book published and to find her estranged father. With her best friend, babysitter Stella (Sadie Brown) - a middle-aged failed actress captivated by an online love affair - by her side, will they succeed in their attempts at living life to the full?

Stand out performances from Internet sensation Tanya Burr in her feature film debut and Brit acting favourite Jaime Winstone (Kidulthood, Made in Dagenham) seal the film's empowering female edge.

Beautifully shot with Greta's poetry woven throughout, it is both a young, accessible indie, as well as a heartwarming ode to the joys of London life. Hurt By Paradise carries a strong emotional arc and an impactful tragi-comic twist that make it a must see movie.

'Charming...full of life and soul...I simply can't stop thinking about it'
