Pacific Northwest, which did the distribution deal with UK-based Independent Sales Company, plans a summer 2015 theatrical release across Canada.

What We Did on Our Holidays, released by Lionsgate stateside, is produced by BBC Films in association with Creative Scotland, Lipsync Productions and Origins Pictures.
