The Deal screens at Belfast Film Festival – April 9th 2011 – Belfast QFT

A short film from the Actors Centre’s Talent Boost 2010 project has been shortlisted to appear at the Belfast Film Festival. ‘The Deal’ written by Katie Douglas and directed by Delyth Thomas will be screened at the prestigious event in April.

The Deal

‘The Deal’ is a black comedy starring an all female cast. In the film, two security guards uncover a baffling set of clues (five cigarettes, two vegetable peelers, a bag, a drop of blood and a pile of puke) that point towards a bizarre crime that took place earlier that day.

The film was one of four made last year as part of the Actors Centre’s Talent Boost project in 2010. Supported by the BBC, Talent Boost aims to create screen opportunities for actors from backgrounds who are underrepresented in the UK film and TV industries. Actors from all over the UK audition for the opportunity to receive training at the Actors Centre and to work with a professional writer and director to make a short film.

‘It’s an incredible honour to have been selected for such an important event on the film festival calendar.’ said the producer, Diane Shorthouse, ‘It’s a great film, it’s funny, very clever and has some talented performances. Talent Boost is an incredible opportunity for actors who are often told there are no parts out there for them. It’s rare that you will see a film with an all female cast, that also has a female writer, female director and female producer… especially a heist film. So we’re very proud’

BBC Talent Boost 2011 is working with a group of disabled actors and actors from Black and Asian backgrounds. They will be shooting their films later this year.
