UK regional agency South West Screen and BBC Films have launched a new digital film initiative - iFeatures – which will see 3 full-length features being developed and shot in Bristol over the next eighteen months.

From 19th October, writers, directors and producers from across the UK will have seven weeks to submit their story ideas. 12 projects will then be selected for development, with three of those projects getting the greenlight for production.

The three films chosen will be produced on a budget of £300,000, with filming scheduled for summer 2010 in Bristol.

iFeatures is funded by South West Screen, Bristol City Council, Skillset and NESTA, together with BBC Films, who will pre buy the TV rights to the final films.
