Lion Ark: Winning awards, hearts & minds

Posted: 12 November 2015. Updated: 13 November 2015


Our live action documentary, Lion Ark, the story of the rescue of 25 lions from Bolivian circuses is creating awareness in a fresh, exciting and uplifting way. Following screenings across Bolivia last autumn, Lion Ark toured the UK cinemas before Christmas with a gala screening in London’s Leicester Square. With a full house enjoying a special ‘pilot’ screening at Everyman Walton-on-Thames in July, screenings at other Everyman locations are likely, along with a US theatrical tour in January.

Winner of ten film festival awards Lion Ark has signed an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment, one of the world’s leading distribution companies. Lion Ark will be coming out on DVD and video on demand following ITV’s initial sales drive to TV. We know many supporters who have not had a screening near them are eager to see Lion Ark, and we hope you can bear with us while ITV Global ensures that the film is seen by as wide an international audience as
possible. Lion Ark is to be broadcast as far afield as Korea, China and Latin America.
