We had an amazing time at Sheffield Doc/Fest and were amazed at how busy the screenings were. Thanks to everyone who took the time to come and see the film.
We just found out today that Project Wild Thing is listed in the top 10 films from Sheffield Doc/Fest as voted for by the audience members. It’s great news.
As well as hearing great feedback from people after the screenings, we’ve gotten some brilliant quotes and articles written about the film. You can read them below.
“Enlightening and entertaining. Like David Attenborough and Morgan Spurlock got drunk and had a baby…”
Hussain Currimbhoy, Sheffield Doc Fest
“A great experiment – but you’re up against money beyond our wildest comprehension”
“Doomed but magnificent. Like charging machine guns with a cavalry regiment.”
Simon Middleton, Build a Brand in 30 Days
“A ridiculous attempt to sell nature as if it were soap powder. I buy soap powder.”
Jonathan Leake, The Sunday Times
“A gripping story of the desperate struggle to lead our computer-crazed children back to nature.”
Harry Mount, The Telegraph
“Funny, alarming and uplifting, this film will change your life. No other ninety minutes in a darkened room is more likely to get you – or your children – into the great outdoors. An exciting, inspirational exploration of our estrangement from nature and how we can all put some wildness back into our own lives. Every parent should watch it.”
Patrick Barkham, The Guardian
author, The Butterfly Isles
“Project Wild Thing is expertly paced and edited, and is also uniquely uplifting and warming. It’s difficult to not fall in love with it and want to begin changing old habits straight away, to go for a walk in the rain in an anorak and wellies, with ones phone left on the kitchen table”
“Project Wild Thing is engaging, moving, thoughtful, and refreshingly irreverent. It captures the perspectives, voices and experiences of children and young people in a rich, three-dimensional way. It is also very funny”
“Heartwarming, genuinely funny, and was hugely well-received by the audience”
“Sweet and humorous”
“Great fun is had in watching Bond try his damnedest to make this a campaign that sticks”
“A rare documentary” , “Laugh-out-loud funny” , “A story that can’t help put a smile on your face”
“Project Wild Thing is at once funny and moving. We must’ve laughed at least once every five minutes”
