In August 2018 we got the good news that MARWELL a feature film Candle & Bell are developing had been selected for the prestigious Biennale College Cinema, in Venice. The team, consisting of writer/ director Benjamin Bee and producer Maria Caruana Galizia, travelled to participate in an intense 10 day workshop in Venice.
