Main task: Film production companies.

As our film is an independent film with a low budget we did not think that it would be produced by big, cinema based film production companies, this ruled out ones such as Twisted Pictures, which although focus on our genre film normally work with established directors and screenwriters. So therefore I did some research into the BBC and Channel 4, both of which produce these types of films.
BBC Films- BBC films seem to do a lot of work with independent films and 'new talent' and, being the the BBC, they focus on mainly British films so whilst they appear good in these ways I do not think they would necessarily show our film. This is due to the fact that it is aimed at teenagers and is quite a 'slasher'. Generally BBC Films show and produce films that are targeted at a different audience and are also normally quite a different genre, with drama seeming to be their focus.

Film 4- Film 4 makes lots of films for both television and cinema. Whilst they have produced some quite big budget films which can be seen on their website, such as The Inbetweeners Movie, they also help to develop more independent films. They also have a wide range of genres that they produce, from comedy to horror. As well as helping to produce these films they also show them on their television channel and others that they own, such as E4. Consequently I feel that Film 4 would be the company to produce and show our film.
