Storyville has developed an enviable reputation since its inception more than a decade ago.
Our aim is to try to bring the most interesting character-based stories from around the world to the screen. That gives us amazing scope to commission across a huge range of genres and subjects, both retrospective and unfolding.
The strand looks for ambitious, narrative, contemporary films to commission in co-production with other funders, to pre-buy or acquire. We aim to broadcast films at an hour or 90 minutes in length.
Screening over 340 films, from some 70 countries, the strand has garnered a staggering array of awards: four Oscars, 15 Griersons, three Peabodys and three International Emmys.
Visit the Storyville programme website to see programme clips.
Ground breaking films with compelling narratives and strong characters, which though international in scope, have themes that touch us all.
Please send all Storyville submissions to email@example.com.
For programme ideas in development or production please email a one to two page treatment, funding plan, scene selections and/or a trailer FAO Hayley Reynolds. For completed films please email a link FAO Jo Lapping.
