Creative England has named the three films to be greenlit for production through the latest round of its low-budget filmmaking initiative iFeatures.
The three films are Lady Macbeth, written by playwright Alice Birch and to be directed by William Oldroyd and produced by Fodhla Cronin O Reilly; Apostasy, co-written by Dan Kokotajlo and Charlotte Wise, to be directed by Kokotajlo and produced by Marcie MacLellan; and The Levelling, written and directed by Hope Dickson Leach and produced by Rachel Robey.
All three projects feature women at the centre of their storylines.
All three are also written or co-written by women and produced by women, and THE LEVELLING has a female director, Hope Dickson Leach. “The Levelling is set against the aftermath of the 2014 Somerset floods and centres around a girl who returns to the family dairy farm following the floods to find her much feared father a shadow of his former self.”
ITS STILL WEDNESDAY. Soooo #wcw goes to the majestic Ashley Oldroyd. She was the main reason I made it through last semester. She kept me sane when I needed it and partied with me when I needed that. So thanks Ash. For real.
