"When people asked where we wanted the UK premiere to take place, I knew it had to be the Glasgow Film Festival - and if I was lucky it would screen in the Glasgow Film Thatre. That dream is going to become a reality and I honestly cannot wait."[4]

Due to overwhelming demand for the film, the festival announced on Twitter that extra tickets would be released for the premiere screening at the Glasgow Film Theatre.[5]
