After screenings at the Bejing International Film Festival and the Portland Film Festival last year, Running Naked will now be screened online via Virtual Cinema. Mark your calendars on World Cancer Day, Thursday, 4 February 2021 at 8:00pm GMT and get your tickets here!
When you register to buy the ticket, you will be asked to enter a UK post code. We’re still trying to find out if that means you have to be a UK resident to see the screening, or if it will be available worldwide. [see our ETAs below to find out the answer]
The film will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast & crew. We don’t know if this includes Andrew Gower but it seems likely since he and Matthew McNulty play the lead characters.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and Weston Park Cancer Centre in Sheffield (UK).
Running Naked is a British independet micro-budget film about love, friendship and streaking.
The friendship of cancer survivors Ben and Mark is tested when a piece of news forces each character to change their perspective. Old wounds are opened as they discover their true selves.

We made a further inquiry with Virtual Cinema directly and their answer was that “the platform only allows for UK residents” but added that “it has been known to work if you use a UK postcode on signing up”.
SW1A 1AA is the postcode of Buckingham Palace. Just as an example. Or you could google the London address of your country’s embassy. Always helpful to know! 😉
