Congratulations to the 4 filmmakers who have been commissioned for this year’s Bridging the Gap!
Genevieve Bicknell – Wullie’s Kitchen
Felipe Bustos Sierra – ¡Nae Pasaran!
Valerie Mellon – The Evolving Scientist
Maurice O’Brien – Buffalo Dreams
What do Scottish buffalo, experimental reflections on food, workers’ solidarity, and an ambitious scientist all have in common? We will find out later this summer!
The films are expected for delivery by the end of May 2013.
Consistently picking up awards, BAFTA’s, special mentions and festival screenings in over 45 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 and in-kind production and mentoring support).
Bridging the Gap is supported by Creative Scotland and Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh)
