The film I helped produce won BEST FEATURE FILM at the Newport International Film Festival.

BEST FEATURE FILM: JACK SAY'S – Directed by Bob Phillips (UK)

Jack Says is a 2008 British independent feature film known particularly for being the last professional engagement of the legendary Mike Reid, who died shortly after filming in 2007.

The film is a contemporary film noir, with comic book undertones that reflect it's precursor graphic novel Jack Said, and is comparable in style to Sin City. The film also stars Simon Phillips, Rita Ramnani, Daniel Roberts, Rula Lenska and Eric Cantona.

Waking up in London with amnesia next to a dead body, Jack has just enough time and sense to disappear before the police arrive. In an attempt to lay low, he heads to Paris to visit the ex he can’t remember. But a guy like Jack attracts trouble, and an encounter with the mysterious Girl X draws him and the woman he loves back into a world he’s trying hard to avoid … and to remember.
