    In November 2014, Candlestick opened the 30 Dies Fantastic Film Festival in Andorra, and was among the first non-Chinese-language films shown at the Europe China Image Film Festival.

    In January 2015 the company announced that the film would open in the United States on April 11 of that year, and be released on VOD, DVD and Blu-ray.


    Following the films Irish premiere, NextProjection called the film a "juicy jaunt of a tale," and said that "like a Raymond Chandler cannibalisation, Candlestick may feed off the familiar, but its the sport with which it spits it back out that makes it feel so fresh".

    The film won three awards at the 30 Dies Fantastic Film Festival, Andorra: best screenplay (Forgacs W. Andras and Christopher Presswell); best original score (Jonathan Armandary); and best actor, shared by Andrew Fitch, Isla Ure, Nigel Thomas and Tom Knight.

    The film received a mention for its screenplay at the Overlook: CinemAvvenire Film Festival 2014 in Rome.
