Hinterland starred Harry Macqueen and Lori Campbell. It was released in UK cinemas on 27 February 2015 to critical acclaim. The Telegraph called it 'A transporting debut'.,[1] The Guardian 'delicate and affecting',[2] and 'a powerful and courageous masterpiece' by ALT Magazine. Sight and Sound described the film as 'so evocative…filmgoers who like their love stories wistful would be well advised to seek it out'. Mike McCahill wrote 'the film’s sincerity and elegance of expression are unquestionable. This work of quiet assurance deserves entry to that select group of 21st century films – Jamie Thraves’ The Low Down, Alex Barrett’s Life Just Is, perhaps Col Spector’s Honeymooner, too – that come close to nailing the way modern British twentysomethings talk, think, feel and muddle through' Movie Mail[3]

The film was picked up by the streaming service MUBI in October 2015.

It was the UK's first carbon-neutral feature film.[citation needed]
