The films still set for release in the UK this Friday

It’s proven too late for some distributors to change their release plans – and so these are the movies that could use a helping hand from you this weekend.

Even though blockbuster movies have now vacated their release slots for the next two months, there are still lots of independent movies on the schedules that can’t afford to do so. And with cinemas in the UK closed for the next few weeks, these films – from small distributors – are now set to entirely rely on their video on demand takings, without the profile or income generated by a theatrical release.

As such, can you give any of these a push?

Dogs Don’t Wear Pants

A hugely acclaimed being brought to the UK by Anti-Worlds, following its success at the London Film Festival last year. The synopsis reads “Juha has lost his wife in a drowning accident. Years after he still feels numb and unable to connect with people. Meeting Mona, a dominatrix, changes everything”.

You can find details of the film here.

Climbing Blind

This award-winning documentary tells the story of a life-long climber who is losing his sight – but it doesn’t stop him climbing Scotland’s Old Man Of Hoy sea stack.

Fire Will Come

New Wave Films is released this Cannes Film Festival prize winner, that’s taken nearly a year to come to the UK. It’s likely to find a home on video on demand, but for the minute, you can read more about the film here.


The story of Marie Curie, as played by Rosamund Pike, is being brought to the screen in Radioactive. Preview screenings have already taken place for the movie, and we await news from distributor StudioCanal as to how it plans to release the film. You can find out more about the movie here.

The Truth

Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche star in this one, from Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu. It’s a Curzon Artificial Eye release in the UK, and as such was already heading to a same-day theatrical and video on demand release. You can find out more about the film here.
