General Manager of Bermuda Motors, owners of Ultimate Motors, Michael Butler said:

We were delighted with the first Bermuda Docs festival in November. The festival brought to Bermuda audiences a wide range of first-class documentary films, and the line-up for April is similarly impressive. We are proud and excited to support an event that I am sure will become a popular fixture on Bermuda’s arts calendar. The Mini philosophy, 50 years after the car was first launched, continues to be about being different, daring and creative – attributes that are shared by the world’s best documentary filmmakers.

Bermuda Docs festival director Duncan Hall added:

Having Mini come aboard as Presenting Sponsor of two Bermuda Docs events in 2010 is fantastic. Mini is one of the world’s great brands, and their sponsorship is a most welcome endorsement of Bermuda Docs.
