Well, I'm delighted to say that the film has been finished and it'll be screened in select independent cinemas across the UK in December! Here's the trailer:
And here's me, being interviewed by the crew back in May, when I went to watch the filming:
Unlike big money feature films that have guaranteed screenings Home for Christmas will be shown via 'our screen' which is a kind of on-demand cinema for independently made films. If enough people pre-book tickets then the film will be show but, if they don't, it won't (and anyone who pre-booked tickets isn't charged).
The cast and crew are going to do a Q&A at some of the screenings (see trailer for details) and I'll be going to the premiere in Brighton on 4th December, a screening in Liverpool on 17th December (fingers crossed, if enough people pre-book!) and the screening in Bristol on 7th December (ditto).

If you can't make any of the screenings don't worry because the film will be made available on vimeo as 'pay per view' and will eventually be released on DVD. I'll let you know the details of those when they become available. But do make it to a screening if you can - there's nothing quite like seeing a film on the big screen and Home for Christmas is a lovely, funny, feel-good film (even if I do say so myself).
If you'd like to find out more do check out all the behind the scenes videos on YouTube:
And 'like' the film's pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Here's a little 'behind the scenes' action of April Pearson getting her revenge on Jamie the Director for getting her to wax her legs in one of the scenes!
It's a bit early but...Happy Christmas everyone!
