Major Coup for Young Filmmaker
4 January 2019
Director Jarryd Coetsee's multiple award-winning short film The Suit is now streaming to over 100 million subscribers in over 200 countries and territories on Amazon Prime.
Coetsee says: "Amazon Prime's vision dovetails brilliantly with ours and we're thrilled about our new partnership and its global reach. We're also so grateful to align with such a prestigious repertoire. This is just the beginning of many exciting developments to come."
The Suit's selection by the worldwide technology giant comes hot on the heels of its stellar festival run comprising over 45 film festivals including three Oscar qualifiers. The SAFTA-winning film was also selected by the Academie des Arts et Techniques du Cinema (France's national academy of cinema which gives France's highest honour for film, the Cesar Award) for its prestigious Les Nuits en Or (Golden Nights) event which saw the film screened in nine European capitals, 24 cities and towns across France and a gala evening hosted by UNESCO in Paris and attended by UN dignitaries and leading French actors and film-makers.
