Since premiering on January 31st, An Island, Efterklang's collaborative film with Vincent Moon has taken on a life of its own, exceeding even the creator’s own modest expectations. Distributed during the first two months using the unique method of Private-Public Screenings devised by the band and director, members of the public were invited to host their own public free-entry screenings of the film in their homes, offices, schools et al (details below). Overall, more than 1,200 screenings of An Island took place during February and March.
Following this success, Efterklang and Vincent Moon have now made An Island available for download and revealed details about the deluxe DVD release of the film. Via the film's website, you can now either choose your own price for the Digital Download or you can pre-order the deluxe DVD package.
The deluxe package is limited to 5,000 custom-made, eco-friendly, numbered, letterpress printed deluxe covers, with a DVD disc full of bonus material. When ordering this package you will receive instant access to the Digital Download of An Island.
As part of the deluxe DVD package a new Efterklang EP 'Live at Roskilde Festival 2010' will also be included (digitally). The EP will only be made available this way.
The Digital Download and DVD Package will only be available via the band's website.
