We were recently contacted to see if any of our wholesale customers wanted to help spread the word about the release of the Coen Brothers’ highly anticipated new film, Inside Llewyn Davis (in cinemas on 24th January).
The film documents a week in the life of an aspiring musician within 60’s greenwich village and StudioCanal thought it a perfect fit for many of our customers – within our team our resident folk music and film geeks were really excited to make something special happen and so we’ve got a number of things going on here and there…
