Banksy's film 'Exit Through The Gift Shop' was announced 21st January 2010 and premiered at Park City's Sundance Film Festival in Utah.   

The BBC reported "It is described as the story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on him". 

Banksy said: "It's the story of how one man set out to film the un-filmable. And failed". He later elaborated to the Guardian "It's a film about a man who tried to make a film about me. Everything in it is true, especially the bits where we all lie."

John Cooper, director of the Sundance festival, described Exit Through the Gift Shop as "one of those films that comes along once in a great while, a warped hybrid of reality and self-induced fiction, while at the same time a totally entertaining experience. The story is so bizarre I began to question if it could even be real ... but in the end I didn't care.

"I feel bad I won't be able to shake the filmmaker's hand and tell him how much I love this film. I think I will shake everyone's hand that day and hope I hit on Banksy somewhere. I love his work in all forms."

UK Release date is 5th March.
