ITV Local will be an official media partner of the next financial year's round of Film London's local support fund, the London Borough Film Fund Challenge. The challenge allows local film-makers the chance to have their films aired on ITV Local's website, itvlocal.com.
The London Borough Film Fund incorporates five 'cluster' film funds which represent 13 London boroughs: Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge (Eastern Edge Film Fund); Bexley, Greenwich and Bromley (Tri-Pod Film Fund); Enfield, Haringey and Waltham Forest (Triangle Film Fund); Ealing and Hounslow
(Ealing and Hounslow Short Film Production Scheme); and Lewisham and Southwark (South London Film Fund).
Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London said: 'This is an exciting new partnership that will increase opportunities for new young filmmakers, and help raise the profile of the short film production schemes we support in association with our colleagues across the London Boroughs.'
