Please note that you will need to submit a proposal through either a registered production company (i.e. companies with a history of films that have been produced and officially distributed either theatrically or at a festival) or an agent. Due to the sheer volume of material Film4 receives, we cannot, unfortunately, consider unsolicited material that does not come via an agent or production company. Instead we find and encourage new filmmaking talent through our proactive development process and our traditionally strong links with independent producers and literary agents.
If you do have an established agent or production company attached to your project, more information on submitting is on the 4Producer’s site. Please do not submit development ideas to Film4 Acquisitions, as they only license completed films for televised broadcast on the digital channel.
If you are a writer and/or director, you will need to find a recognised agent to submit your script on your behalf. As a first time film maker, we understand that finding representation can be difficult so we do advise that before you approach an agent, it is best to create a selection of work that you can present them with. Even if they respond to a single piece of work that is sent to them, if they wish to arrange a meeting with you, they will ask for a further portfolio that they can look at before they invest in a relationship with someone. Obviously if you are first starting out it is best to approach junior agents rather than senior agents at companies. Junior agents are looking to expand their portfolios and therefore are more likely to pick up new talent.
Agents, similarly to production companies, will be looking for a new and distinctive voice to come through in someone's writing and the more material that you can support them with the more interest you will be able to generate. While we cannot recommend a particular production company or agent or have a list to share, we can suggest checking out the Producers Alliance of Film and Television (PACT) for a directory of independent production companies or picking up the Writers and Artists Yearbook, available at Amazon for the agents' contacts.
It's also worth keeping an eye on Channel 4's 4Talent scheme for opportunities for new writers, for which you don't need representation or a track record.
