Kaleidoscope Film Distribution acquires worldwide sales rights for all-female drama, Tell That to the Winter Sea

An all-female cast drama which explores and celebrates the deep complexity of femininity and female relationships.
Kaleidoscope Film Distribution (KFD) has acquired the international sales rights for UK produced, Tell That to the Winter Sea, an all-female drama exploring and celebrating the deep complexity of femininity and female relationships.

Tell That to the Winter Sea tells the story of bride-to-be Jo and her first love, Scarlet, who reunite after years apart to celebrate Jo’s upcoming marriage at a house in the English countryside. Having initially bonded through their love of dance, Jo is now a successful dancer with a Parisian dance company, whilst Scarlet teaches movement at a secondary school. As Jo approaches a major transition, she turns to Scarlet, the woman she once loved, to share both her joy and melancholy to reflect on the young women they once were, and the women they are becoming. All the while, surrounded by a wider cast of characters who are just intent on a good old-fashioned hen weekend.

The feature is directed by Jaclyn Bethany, who also co-wrote alongside lead actor Greta Bellamacina (This EnglandThe Essex Serpent). Greta is among an all-female cast including Amber Anderson (Peaky BlindersEmma), Tamsin Egerton (St Trinian’sGrimsby), Jessica Plummer (The Girl Before) & Josette Simon (Wonder Woman). Robert Montgomery and C.C. Kellogg produce, and Peregrine Kitchener-Fellowes is Executive Producer.
The deal was signed by Spencer Pollard, CEO of KFD, and Robert Montgomery, of Sulk Youth.

Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment will release in the UK, later in 2023, in line with international releases and film festival commitments.

Spencer Pollard, CEO of Kaleidoscope Film Distribution, says: “Tell That To The Winter Sea promises to be an exceptional piece of film-making that festival goers and audiences will thoroughly enjoy. We will present early scenes and art for the film in the upcoming Berlin Film Market and there should be lots of activity around the film later in the year as we solidify the festival plans.

Jaclyn Bethany added; “In my filmmaking career I am most interested in exploring narratives from a female perspective that have not been seen before. I am forever curious about how women come of age in our world, where societal norms and heteronormative behaviour have dominated much of our existence. Women's voices need to come to the forefront of our cultural conversation, pushing us to think about what it really means to be a woman. It's the small details in recent feminist queer cinema that have stirred my mind, challenged me and pushed my own directing forward.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution will be attending the European Film Market in February.
