Great news from Berlin!Brasslands has been accepted into the jury-selected film screening series at this year’s WOMEX conference in Santiago de Compostela, Spain!
If you have not yet seen the film, or if you’re itching to see it again, fret not! There is a good chance that Brasslands is playing at a theater near you. Check out the documentary’s schedule of Upcoming Screenings.
We are so thrilled to announce that Brasslands has won the award for “Best Feature Documentary” at the Chicago International Movies & Music Festival!
“Brasslands was a vibrant depiction of the positive side of a place that normally gets in the news for negative reasons. It shows the fine line between cultural appropriation and cultural diversity and propagation.” —Fernanda Rossi, Documentary Juror

Brasslands isn’t just the soundtrack to an extraordinary documentary film, but the soundtrack to a blistering global movement of Balkan brass fanatics across the world!
