The AOF now in it’s 11th year has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious film festivals in California and runs from 18th – 27th September 2015 with the awards being held at the beautiful Hilton Pasadena Grand Ballroom.
We last found ourselves at the Action On Film International Festival back in 2013 when our short film Drake was selected / nominated and went onto to win ‘Best Foreign Short film’ and Cengiz Dervis nominated for ‘Best Performance By An Actor In A Leading Role’.
Of all the global festivals we have attended over the years the AOF is a really special event and not only have we seen some of the best work there, we’ve also met some of the nicest, most talented, proactive and passionate filmmakers in the business, some of which we have since had to pleasure to go on and work with in the U.S and UK.
Having learned our production craft creating award winning short festival films and spending the last few years working internally on a number of feature film scripts (whilst also exploring a few potential external projects to produce), the time has come in our plan to move onto making feature films and we have four outstanding features on our slate.
- UH10 – Cleverly woven, military heist action, adventure.
- Fairy Godmother Inc – Romantic, comedy with a gorgeous, hilarious script.
- The DRAKE Files – Gritty supernatural thriller influenced by the graphic novel of the same name. (Video game idea being worked on).
- Galahad – Action, adventure, drama with epic potential. (Video game idea being worked on).
There are a number of ways investors can buy into our films including utilising EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme) and SeedEIS qualified shareholdings, which come with very attractive tax benefits.
