I had the absolute pleasure of spending time with Network Releasing this week in the run up to the release of Chile’s first Oscar Nominated Film NO.
Gael Garcia Bernal, the star of the film and Eugenio Garcia on whom his character was partly based were also in London to promote the film – you may have seen them on Newsnight or Channel 4 News but they also found time to record a special Q&A with Amnesty International
OSCAR™ MEMBERS SAY YES TO GAEL GARCÍA BERNAL IN “NO” FOR ‘BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM’
Exclusive Opportunity to take part in the Theatrical Release for BFFS Members & Associates!
Following the news that Pablo Larraín’s compelling drama NO has been shortlisted at the 85th Academy Awards® for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’, we are delighted to announce that working hand in hand with Network Releasing, BFFS is bringing you the chance to show NO to your audiences as part of the film’s 2013 UK national release.
The film was previewed at the BFFS National Conference last September and received an exceptionally high audience reaction of 80%
NO is being backed in the UK by a heavy-weight advertising and publicity campaign supported by Gael García Bernal himself, so booking it early will take advantage of members’ awareness of the film.
In addition, Network is supporting BFFS audience screenings of this gripping film with posters, social media support and a BFFS-Exclusive Director Introduction by Pablo Larraín to play before the feature.
The True Story of Chile’s “Mad Men” Who Fought A Dictator with Happiness.

“A brilliant study of Pinochet era politics” Jason Solomons, The Observer
“The best film I have seen all year” Mike McCahill, Sunday Telegraph
Winner of the Art Cinema Prize in Cannes 2012 and now shortlisted at the 85th Academy Awards® for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’, NO stars Gael García Bernal in the true story about one of the most unlikely outcomes in world history. How did a small group of media executives and people opposing Pinochet’s regime manage to remove Chile’s dictator with only 15 minutes of TV exposure in the early hours of the morning? NO is one of the most inspirational films you will see this year. Filled with intrigue and drama, NO opens in the UK on 8th February 2013 at cinemas.
Please get in touch NOW to book if you’d like to screen NO from Friday 22nd February 2013.
