iFEATURES SHORTLISTS 8 TEAMS FOR FULL DEVELOPMENT

Eight teams have been selected from the iFeatures slate for further development funding, as the UK’s most exciting low budget feature film initiative from Creative England enters its full development phase.

In early 2015, three of the projects will be greenlit, each with a budget of £350,000. Partners Creative England, the BFI and BBC Films will fully-finance, with the BBC pre-buying UK free TV rights. The accompanying professional development programme is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund.

 Christopher Granier-Deferre, iFeatures Executive Producer, said: “Covering a wide range of genres from dark unsettling thrillers to intoxicating period dramas while tackling the universal themes of grief, guilt and pride, and raising thought-provoking questions about religious, racial and sexual identity across a variety of locations, the eight filmmaking teams represent an eclectic mix of stories and illustrate the rich diversity of voices and ideas to be found in the English regions.

 “Selecting the eight teams for full development was an incredibly tough process for the panel. This was a remarkably rich cohort and I can't praise the departing teams enough for all the hard work they put in to get this far. I know we've not heard the last of these wonderful projects by any means.”
