Finding Your True Self took the North East out into the world with stunning reviews and awards
An award-winning independent feature featuring Newcastle and its rising screen stars has hit Amazon Prime.
Finding Your True Self is the brainchild of local production company Terabithia Pictures and Alnwick-based filmmaker Gabriel Brown.
The film is presented as a “slice of life” with elements of romance and drama.
It tells the story of an isolated young man trying to free himself from his controlling brother, who then meets new friends, allowing him an escape and a new breath of life.
The short Finding Your True Self trailer includes famous Geordie shots of Quayside, Leazes Park and St Peter’s Marina.
Filmmaker Gabriel Brown said: “It’s surreal to finally have the movie released and released, besides even being on Amazon Prime!
“It’s been a real labor of love to create this and I thank everyone for their dedication, hard work and passion – we couldn’t have done it without you.”
Addison Keen, a Haltwhistle-based actor and producer, co-produced the feature alongside Gabriel and stars in the film as The Gallery Host.
Addison said: “It’s amazing to see the movie finally coming out!
“It’s a great testament to all the talented cast and crew who helped put it together to be able to show off their work on a platform like Amazon.
“It has been great to follow our labor of love to fruition and I look forward to the future.”
The film won both Best Drama and Best Director for the first time at the November 2021 edition of the Falcon International Film Festival in London.
An accolade for Best Feature Script at the Calcutta International Film Festival and the Monthly Prague International Film Festival followed.
