Moon Dogs premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June 2016. It won Best International First Feature at Galway Film Fleadh and was BAFTA Scotland nominated, BIFA longlisted, and was selected as Best of the Fest at EIFF 2016.

The director Philip John said: “Making a film is like bringing up a child. You love her, you dress her well, you teach her honesty then you boot her out the door so she can spread the word that rebellion is good.”
