Congratulations to the 4 filmmakers who have been commissioned for this year’s Bridging the Gap! After a whole day of very impressive pitches, it was a tough choice to select the projects that will be made this year.
We are delighted to announce the selected filmmakers:
Alasdair Bayne – In search of the Wallaby
Paul Fegan – Pouters
Yu-Hsueh Lin – Takeaway
Chico Pereira – Seafarers
More hard work ahead! The films are expected for delivery by the end of May 2012.
Consistently picking up awards, BAFTA’s, special mentions and festival screenings in over 40 countries worldwide, Bridging the Gap is one of the leading documentary new talent initiatives for cinema in the UK. It offers an intense creative training programme alongside production and distribution. This year the four short documentaries have been allocated a budget of up to £16K each (8K cash, 8K in-kind).
