Through the enhanced iFeatures2 initiative, we'll support the development of 16 projects and the production of 3 films on budgets of £350,000. Having begun life in 2009 as an initiative focused on Bristol, we're widening the net to a search for stories that reflect England.
Our scope is now broader but we're still hungry for films that can capture a sense of place, and even time. Tales of the way we live and the world we live in that will challenge, move and entertain audiences across the world.
From Newcastle to the Sussex coast, from Manchester to the Norfolk Broads
We're looking for England’s most imaginative and compelling stories from its brightest filmmakers.
There will be two consecutive development programmes, first in the Summer for 16 projects, then in the Autumn for 8 projects, before 3 films are green lit in December 2012.
Creative England is leading the expansion alongside its partners the BFI Film Fund, BBC Films, and the Skillset Film Skills Fund.
iF on Film is our way of sharing ideas, experiences and inspiration from film makers and the iFeatures team. We hope it's a source of inspiration for everyone.
