Jack to King's screening in Holland & success at Bafta Cymru awards
Jack to a King makes it's Dutch debut today (Monday) with a screening in Den Haag.
The 90-minute documentary tells the club’s heart-warming success story and documents our journey from the lowest professional league in Britain to one of the most prestigious in the world.
The event comes two weeks after the film was shown in the European capital of Brussels as part of a cultural event organised by the Welsh Government.
And John Van Zweden - a director of both Den Haag and the Swans who also features in the documentary - is looking forward to the event.
“It promises to be a huge spectacle,” said van Zweden, who was amongst the ‘rag tag’ band of fans that came together to save the Swans over a decade ago.
“All the tickets for the premiere where sold within 90 minutes while the press and media ring me about the film all the time."
Following the screening, Jack to a King will be aired across Holland by Fox Sports, with the first showing scheduled for October 5.
The DVD of Jack to a King is still available from Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium and from the Cwmdu Club shop, as well as online at www.swansdirect.com and from iTunes.
Meanwhile, Jack to a King director Marc Evans won an award at the annual Bafta Cymru awards. He received the best director award, while Bang Post Production received the best sound accolade for the film.
