We just wanted to say thanks again for the huge show of support you've given towards our Walerian Borowczyk project. It's been a tremendous honour for us to work on these films, and to play a part in making them available for audiences to see again, after being unavailable for so many years. Thanks to you, we're now scheduling the new restoration work of Borowczyk masterpiece Goto, l'île d'amour to begin very soon!
We also wanted to say that although we reached our initial goal of 20K, exceeding that figure has had the extraordinary benefit of allowing us to consider the restoration of the short films Borowczyk made for Argos Films. This wasn't part of our initial plan, but your overwhelming show of support has now made doing this a real possibility.

Happy New Year to all our fans! 2013 was a great year for us, being named Label of the Year by multiple publications and sites, garnering a record 4 awards from Home Cinema Choice magazine and scoring multiple entries in various Top 10 of the year lists. But our most important feedback was from you, our fans – so with a juicy prize on offer we asked you to name your favourite Arrow release of the year, new cover artwork, reversible sleeve (original artwork), SteelBook design, extra, booklet and restoration. We were pleased to see a whopping number of entries as well as a wide variety of votes (more than 75% of our releases were voted for in all categories), showing everyone has very individual tastes. Here’s what came out on top for each category.
