Broadway to launch £100,000 film investment fund

Broadway to launch £100,000 film investment fund

Creative talent in and around Nottingham will soon benefit from the legacy of regional screen agency EM Media following the assignment of its digital investment fund residual assets to leading independent cinema Broadway. Combining EM Media’s legacy finance with its own funds, Broadway will now launch a £100,000 investment fund.

John Tobin, Broadway’s Development Director, who will head the fund, says “We’re proud that EM Media has entrusted Broadway with its legacy and given us the opportunity to build on its contribution to the British film industry. As a producing cinema, an investment fund is a notable addition to our growing portfolio of support for UK talent, which includes Near Now, our commissioning and artist development programme and Projector, our creative business support programme, alongside being a delivery partner of the BFI’s Film Academy UK Network. Already, filmmakers based at Broadway have their work seen by audiences around the world; we hope this fund will be the incentive for more local films to reach production”.

He adds “We’re anticipating the fund will primarily be for the development of feature length fiction and documentary films intended for theatrical release, from seed investment for early research through to advanced stage investment for packaging. Investment is likely to be, where possible, in projects co-financed with other partners and recoupable in line with industry practice. To reflect the uniqueness of Broadway managing a film fund and being a cinema, I expect we’ll be looking to prioritise projects that actively engage audiences from the very start.

More details about the fund and the application process will be announced on our website in July.

Rankin4Notts exhibition comes to Broadway

The world famous photographer, Rankin, is visiting St Ann’s Allotments in Nottingham on 16 May, to photograph allotment holders and volunteers.

We’re proud to say the resulting portraits will be on display in our Café Bar from Monday 19 May to 1 June from 5pm every day, after being displayed at the allotments at a special evening exhibition on the 16th May.

Rankin’s visit to the allotments and the evening exhibition of his work is part of the national Museums at Night festival, an annual UK-wide festival encouraging people to visit museums, galleries and heritage sites by throwing their doors open after hours and putting on special evening events.

The charities behind the allotments, The Renewal Trust and STAA, won a Museums at Night competition back in January, giving arts and heritage venues up and down the country the chance to win a visit from one of ten contemporary artists, including Rankin.

Nottingham beat off fierce competition from thousands of venues to go through to the final four vying for the chance to win Rankin. The decision was then put to a public vote and Nottingham won with over 40% of the vote.

The allotments are the oldest and largest area of Victorian detached town gardens in the UK and a grade II* listed heritage site. As a ‘living museum’ the allotments span 700 years of Nottingham history, and are home to around 700 individual allotment gardens as well as community projects, enjoyed by local people.

Rankin said:

"I'm really proud to be part of Museums at Night, a fantastic festival which encourages people to engage with heritage sites, museums and galleries in their local neighbourhoods. Being chosen by the people of Nottingham with such an overwhelming majority of votes was a real honour. I feel very lucky to be partnered with such a unique and historically rich site such as St Ann's and I look forward to capturing the allotment holders and community workers that make St Ann's Allotments so special."
