UK thriller This Is Not A Love Song is to receive what is being billed as the first-ever 'e' premiere in the world.

Written by The Full Monty's Simon Beaufoy, the cat and mouse thriller set on desolate moors is being made available for streaming and downloading on the web and simultaneously streamed and digitally projected in cinemas.

The move was announced by the UK Film Council, the public support body which recently launched a £14m scheme to fund digitial cinema screens. This Is Not A Love Song, which was shot on DV cameras by director Bille Eltringham, will premiere on September 5.
