Tull Stories has received support from the BFI Audience fund for its forthcoming release, the documentary BIG vs SMALL.
The film will be released in UK cinemas on Friday 21st October.
Directed by Finnish filmmaker Minna Dufton, BIG vs SMALL follows Portuguese big wave surfer Joana Andrade as she battles the demons of long-buried trauma which began to affect her sport. Realising that she had been harbouring a fear of drowning, Joana spent time with Finnish champion free diver Johanna Nordblad, who enabled her to overcome her fear.
BIG vs SMALL is Tull Stories’ next Adventure Club release and follows previous Tull Stories outdoor/adventure films, including the mountaineering documentary THE WALL OF SHADOWS, PIANO TO ZANSKAR, CLIMBING BLIND by Alastair Lee and HOME by Sarah Outen and Jen Randall.
The BFI’s support will enable BIG vs SMALL to reach a wider audience, with the support designed to create more opportunities for young women to engage with the film.
The award will also help the film reach more people via a wider PR and marketing campaign.
To realise this work we will be working with the audience development agency Crystallised on the release of BIG vs SMALL.
We are very grateful to have received this award and for the BFI’s recognition not only of the value of the film, but also of the work of Tull Stories in working to support outdoor/adventure film and communities in the UK.
BIG vs SMALL is released with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery
