Paul Ashton, Senior Film Executive at Creative England said:
“Supporting regional voices at a key point in their career is at the heart of Creative England’s mission.
One thing I know is you can’t just wait for the best talent to come to you – you must go out and find it, nurture it, protect it and embolden it. The best way to do that is to work hand in hand with those who know their regions and know their talent.
This partnership is the perfect recipe to discover, inspire and support the next generation of writers for the big screen and I can’t wait to see what they create along the way.”
