Britannia Film Premiere
We were honoured to be invited to the premiere of “The Dream of Britannia”, a documentary film made by Ann Coates, sister of Norwegian businessman Sigurd Coates who built the hull of our K1 Britannia in a shipyard he purchased in Archangel, Russia.
The trials and tribulations that Sigurd encountered during his mission to build a replica of the Royal Yacht Britannia made a gripping documentary, which literally had audience members on the edge of their seats willing him to win.
Our team member Jana Seitanidou travelled to Oslo in Norway for the premiere, which played to a packed auditorium. “The film brought to life the story of the rebuild of Britannia and all that she has fought to overcome to bring her this far!” said Jana.
After the premiere in Oslo Ann Coates took the film to the Northern Character Film @ TV Festival in Murmansk and “The Dream of Britannia” was among the four best films in the documentary class, out of a total of 42 films, most of them from the Barents countries. The film also achieved a 3rd Diploma.
We are hoping to show the film in the K1 Britannia shop shortly. If you are interested in seeing the film please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
