There are countless stories of people with successful careers who’ve had their world turned upside down by illness or a stroke of bad luck. Our support can be a lifeline in your moment of need – or simply open a door.
Scottish filmmaker, Ben Sharrock, was working on the screenplay for ‘Limbo’ when he needed support. We were able to award him a financial grant, which helped him complete the screenplay and go on to film ‘Limbo’.
‘Limbo’ was recently nominated for Outstanding British Film and Outstanding Debut at the BAFTA Film Awards. The film is a wry, funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience. This deadpan comedy-drama from a bold new voice in British cinema shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a crisis that is mostly witnessed through headlines. The film will be released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland by MUBI on 30 July.
