'Voices' Continues to Storm the Festival Circuit
March 2023 marks a busy month for the 'Voices' team whereby it seems to be getting the acceptance and recognition it so readily deserves. The journey for this month alone begins in North Carolina at Nevermore Film Festival before moving across to BIFA qualifying Manchester Film Festival for a Saturday night screening at The Odeon. Crystal Palace Film Festival takes up a large portion of March with 'Voices' screening at the West Norwood Picturehouse for a Friday night screening. After CPFF2023 'Voices' then gets to look forward to it's official selection at Bahamas International Film Festival and Beeston Film Festival where it is also nominated for Best Film.

For Tom and Daisy, to see a film manage to make its way through so many selection processes is a satisfying payoff. The sound palette is a scratchy violin and an aluminium water bottle percussion, performed and recorded by both Tom and Daisy, neither of whom play the violin at all! The choice to hire a session violinist was there and ultimately dropped in favour of the scratchier, less polished sound to create an off-kilter mystery score where, much like the plot of the film, nothing is quite as it seems.
