ThinkSync are proud to announce that Gimme The Loot is set to screen at the 56th BFI London Film Festival.

The first feature from hotly-tipped director Adam Leon, the film captivated audiences at SXSW earlier this year taking the coveted Grand Jury Prize. Music supervised by Connie Farr, it will also be released in theatres around the UK early next year by Soda Pictures.

Synopsis:
Chided by Queens punks who have stepped onto their turf and messed up their artwork, Malcolm and Sofia are two Bronx kids who become determined to make a mark on the city with their graffiti. They plan to tag an iconic NYC landmark, and set out to hustle the $500 they need to get close to succeeding in their mission. Their adventure involves detours into drug-dealing and casual petty crime, though for all of Malcolm’s swagger and Sofia’s smart-mouthedness, the pair get ripped off or slapped down at every turn, as their audacious task appears to become an unlikely proposition.
