A New Year, A New Poster

Happy New Years from the The Workers Cup film team!

We're looking forward to an exciting 2017 and hope to share news of upcoming screenings dates later this month.

Designed by the talented Karine Savard, our new poster features goalkeeper Calton in the foreground holding a football (or soccer ball if you prefer!) with a sprawling birds eye view of a construction site in the background. We hope it will convey the humanity of the men which was captured so beautifully by director Adam Sobel in the film and grab audience's attention around the world...

Look out for our poster at a festival near you in 2017!

World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival!

We are extremely proud and slightly tearful to announce that THE WORKERS CUP has been selected to make its World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival in their World Documentary Competition.

This is our first chance to say thank you to the men featured in the film: Kenneth, Paul, Umesh, Calton, Samuel, Padam, Dean, Sebastian, and Grahame. Thank you for letting us tell your story.

And to all the people who cannot be named who supported us through the filming in Qatar and around the world during the final stages of this film, we thank you for your generosity.

We want to particularly thank DOK.Incubator and all the wonderful people there, both mentors and peers, for helping us finish the film. We could not have done it without you. You gave us the tools and energy we needed get the film to the global audience we feel the subject and people in the film deserve.

And thank you also to our families, other halves, and friends who have supported us along this difficult journey. It has been three years since the film began, but we are finally nearly at the finish line.

The stories of the men in this film are not just about Qatar, nor football, nor the FIFA World Cup. They are men reaching for a better life for their families and children. They will make you smile - and they may just make you tearful as well. We cannot wait to introduce you.

Our first award! For Post Production from DOK.incubator

A huge THANK YOU to Dok.Incubator and I/O POST for your generous prize for colour grading and DCP mastering. And what a welcoming bunch the people at Nordisk Panorama are. Czech Republic here we come! Surely this has to one of the most multi national documentaries of the year. Next stop Berlin for the final run of editing. Then we hope to see you at IDFA. Anyone with a spare canal boat do let us know...!

Our first public outing...

We have had to keep very quiet about this film we are making for the last three years. Now we are nearly ready to go public. And the people coming on Sunday the 18th of September to Nordisk Panorama at 10am will see a first taste of the film. None of this could have happened without the extraordinary support of DOK.incubator (if you have not seen what they do , you should). We have an ambitious and exciting social media and outreach plan starting before the end of the year for the rest of the world. Hope to see you there!
