Producer Alex Thiele is selected for the Creative Producers Initiative designed by Creative England and offered as part of the BFI NET.WORK. The programme will help producers build strong creative skills and learning how to develop and diversify their project portfolio.

Brek Taylor, Head of Film at Creative England, said: “The independent film sector is an increasingly challenging environment. We have some exceptional producers breaking into the industry but it’s essential that we sustain them by supporting both their creative and entrepreneurial instincts. Developing their ability to work with and retain relationships with great talent is of huge importance and this will be a key focus of both programmes.”
