BAFTA-winning vegan film 73 Cows is now available to watch online at Curzon Home Cinema.

The film, which used to be free to view on Vimeo, had to be pulled offline due to BAFTA regulations.

Now fans can pay £5 to watch the movie, or wait until April 1, when it will be available for free to view on Vimeo.

"We're thrilled to be inundated with messages asking where 73 Cows can be seen," said the team behind the film. "It's so wonderful for us to know that so many people want to watch our little film.

"The film has needed to come offline as part of the BAFTA terms - though we are enjoying reading the conspiracy theories out there about why it has been taken down.

"BAFTA has enabled 73 Cows to be seen by millions and to reach a much wider audience for its re-release, and has really raised its profile - we are so grateful for this. We hope you can keep supporting our film"

Speaking about the film and its impact to Plant Based News, director Alex Lockwood said: "When we set out with no budget and a such a small team, we never anticipated that the film would get the response that it is. We've all been making films for a long time and so it's great to finally produce something which is having an impact.

"We owe a huge thanks to Jay and Katja Wilde for letting us tell their story which has resonated with so many people.

"It’s really a bit of a whirlwind! I was shocked to have won a BAFTA as the other films were so strong, but I’m absolutely delighted and I hope that this shows other filmmakers that you don't need a budget to make a film."
