I am really excited that I will be able to spend more time seeking out diverse talent and supporting exciting filmmakers who may be struggling to find opportunities.” Rupert Lloyd Noor Pictures Ltd, London “A BFI Vision Award will transform my company, Noor Pictures. It gives me a once in a lifetime opportunity to devote all my energy towards nurturing existing creative relationships, building new ones, and developing a diverse range of films leading to the establishment of a sustainable and successful business” Brian J Falconer Out of Orbit Ltd, Belfast “The BFI Vision Award will accelerate the growth of our development slate enabling us to work with world class creatives and will show that this Belfast based company is very much open for business. Olivier Kaempfer and Cecilia Frugiuele Parkville Pictures Ltd, London “We’re thrilled to be given this opportunity to expand our reach and nurture new voices. Our identity has always been to incubate talent and allow stories to emerge through collaboration and exploration. The Vision award will allow us to do just that, with more freedom and dynamism than ever before.” Elhum Shakerifar Postcode Films Ltd, London “This is an incredible opportunity to develop new documentary work – in this field, the quietest voices might also be the most distinctive, and this award is an enabler to finding, supporting and taking what might traditionally be considered ‘a risk’ on developing new ideas and working with a broader range of emerging filmmakers.” Serena Armitage Red Breast Productions Ltd, York “The vision award is an absolute game changer for Red Breast, it gives me the resource I desperately need to scale up the company. It will enable me to work full-time as a film producer, developing emerging writers I wholeheartedly believe in as well as enabling me to form collaborations with established talent across the UK film industry.” Camilla Bray Rosetta Productions Ltd, London “The Vision Award will allow us to continue to nurture our slate while moving into our first production, supporting us as we champion visionary directors and writers driven by a strong sense of place, politics and identity” Bennett McGhee Silvertown Films Ltd, London “The Vision Award will allow me to empower the convictions of ambitious new voices and champion projects from an early stage, talent who might not otherwise receive the early backing and support that is so crucial to their development.” Emily Morgan Soda Pictures Ltd, London “The Vision Award is a huge boost to the slate I’ve been developing. I’ll be able to kickstart ideas that are at an early stage and will also move more advanced projects towards production by using the funds for casting and other packaging costs.” Rienkje Attoh So & So Productions Ltd, London “I set up my company with the intention of making film that satisfied my eclectic palate and catered to an audience who didn’t see themselves reflected in the films they loved. I aim to contribute to the improvement of the on-screen presence of underrepresented voices by offering a platform that showcases a variety of narratives and genres that will inspire a generation to be more understanding of difference and celebrate our common humanity.” Eleanor (Nell) Whitley London “As a Producer getting resources to allow me to focus on work with new talent is a rare and brilliant thing. I am hugely excited to be using this Award to support Directors exploring 360º filmmaking and create innovative filmic content to be experienced in new ways.” AWARDS BFI VISION AWARD PRODUCERS, 2016 Top row (left to right): Bennett McGhee, Brian J Falconer, Camilla Bray, Chris Hees, Rob Watson, Emily Morgan Second row: Libby Durdy and Bekki Wray-Rogers, Catryn Ramasut, Jacqui Davies Third Row: Jude Goldrei, Loran Dunn, Michelle Eastwood, Kamilla Hodøl and Emilie Jouffroy Fourth row: Cecilia Frugiule and Olivier Kaempfer, Rienkje Attoh, Ciara Barry and Rosie Crerar, Rupert Lloyd Fifth Row: Nell Whitley, Rachelle Constant, Serena Armitage, Elhum Shakerifar, and Yaw Basoah
