MoC Newsletter wrote:The London Film Festival is just around the corner and we're extremely proud to have not one, but two films showing this year. The first is Computer Chess, Andrew Bujalski's boldly intelligent ensemble comedy. The film will show on three days, you can order tickets here but don't hang around as they are going fast. The second is, well, we're not telling you... we want you to track it down, what we can tell you is that it has been put forward to the Academy of Motion Pictures as its country of origin's entrant for Best Foreign Language feature at this years Academy Awards, Its thoroughly wonderful, and we'll be releasing it theatrically early next year. So, have a hunt and the first person to tweet us with the hashtag #secretfilm and the correct answer will win a poster for both this and Computer Chess. Happy hunting! We'll announce the winner in our next newsletter in a couple of weeks.

Wadjda, probably. I ain't tweeting.

EDIT: Nevermind, it looks like Soda's already released this. So definitely The Rocket

MoC Newsletter wrote:With London Film Festival now nearly over, we can reveal our secret film from the last newsletter, it is... The Rocket, director Kim Mourdant's first dramatised feature. We had the pleasure of meeting him and the film's producer Sylvia Wilczynski while they were here, they are both lovely people and Kim spent a day in the studio while here recording a wonderfully interesting and funny audio commentary for our Blu-ray and DVD release next year.

I was under the impression that The Rocket was a forthcoming release in MoC collection, not a non-MoC title? Or am I mistaken? Maybe I'm just reading into it because of the newsletter stating that they have two films in LFF, Computer Chess (a forthcoming MoC-title) being the other.
