Lack of funding is a problem many filmmakers come up against, leaving them with the problem of not being able to share their vision and creativity.
Award-winning filmmaker Pia Getty’s passion of finding the next generation of filmmakers and supporting creative talent led to the start of ‘Pia Pressure’. A film and television production company set up to support emerging talent and new voices to make exciting, poignant and original films.
Together with producer James Durrant and award-winning director Johnny Kenton, both notable supporters of the creative arts, Pia Pressure will act as a film and television production company with the aim of elevating emerging talent, female filmmakers and filmmakers from under-represented backgrounds.
The company has introduced the ‘Pia Pressure Awards’, which offers the opportunity to receive funding and support. Each award-winning team will receive up to £30.000 to fund their project and guide them as well. The winners will benefit from becoming life peers, joining Pia Pressure’s network. They will also be expected to give a small amount of time to help first timers, female filmmakers and filmmakers from under-represented backgrounds.
