Lion Ark at Boulder International Film Festival

Posted: 16 February 2015. Updated: 4 March 2015

Lion Ark will be returning to Colorado and the home of our Lion Ark prides after being selected for the prestigious Boulder International Film Festival, with two screenings being held on Saturday, March 7th.

It will be the first major US screenings since Lion Ark signed a worldwide distribution deal with ITV GE, who showcased the film at MIPCOM Cannes last year to global media markets. Lion Ark will have a selected US theatrical tour in April before being available on TV and Video On Demand.

Described by critics as “uplifting” and “the feel-good movie of the year,” Lion Ark has taken the film festival circuit by storm winning six awards at sell out screenings and securing an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding International Motion Picture.

More action adventure style than traditional documentary Lion Ark tells the story of how ADI secured the ban on animal circuses in Bolivia and, when the circuses defied the law, set about rescuing every animal.

Lion Ark Director Tim Phillips (ADI Vice President) and Producer Jan Creamer (ADI President), who led the rescue team, will be doing a Q&A following both screenings, joined by founder of The Wild Animal Sanctuary Pat Craig. Tim and Jan will be flying up from Peru the day before where ADI is in the middle of another huge rescue, Operation Spirit of Freedom.
