Projects include Calloused Hands writer-director Jesse Quinones’ love-story between an English woman and a young Cuban man who meet on holiday but struggle adapting to London life, and Selina Lim’s adaptation of London-based short Painkiller.
Al Mackay takes a group of beautiful and potentially dangerous individuals volunteering at an organic farm in Southern France with fatal consequences and art-director Keith Slote is working on a high concept period romantic-comedy set in Renaissance Italy.
From the second module, writers will be paired with producers to continue the development process »
