The World War II-based Bermuda documentary In The Hour of Victory is based on the book of the same name by Jonathan Smith and has enjoyed a run of success throughout 2013. In April, the film won the top Remi Platinum Award for Feature Documentary at the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival.

In June, it was announced that an agreement had been reached for Ostrow & Company, based in Beverly Hills, California, to become the producer’s representative in selling both the North American and international film rights. This was followed just a week ago by a win in the “Best Directing in a Documentary” category at the Southampton International Film Festival.

In the Hour of Victory was co-directed by the Bermudian team of Lucinda Spurling and Andrew Kirkpatrick. The film has also screened at the Bermuda Docs Film Festival and the Bermuda International Film Festival.

Copies of the original book are available locally at the Book Mart, the Bermuda Book Store, the Book Cellar in St. George’s, and at the Arts Centre at Dockyard. DVDs are available at the Arts Centre and the Book Mart.
