Pact has revealed the thirty new and emerging indies from across the UK who have been selected to take part in the Pact Future30 scheme.

As part of its 30th anniversary celebrations, Pact issued a national call out to find 30 of the UK’s most exciting new indies who have the potential to become the sector’s gamechangers of the future. Indies had to submit a two minute video to explain why they should be chosen for the scheme, and an expert panel including Laura Marshall, Icon Films; Laura Bessell, Argonon; Billy Macqueen, Darrall Macqueen; Jane Kelly, Big Mountain Productions; Julie Baines, Dan Films, Gwenda Carnie, Cardiff Productions; Thomasina Gibson, Heroes Productions; and Hakan Kousetta, 60Forty Films have been judging hundreds of applications over the past month.

The scheme includes two years’ free Pact membership and a tailored development programme with access to industry experts to help them to develop and grow their businesses, as well as all of the regular member benefits including free legal and business affairs advice, regular TV commissioner briefings and access to the Pact Growth Accelerator.

Pact Chair and CEO of 60Forty Films, Hakan Kousetta, said: “The judges were blown away by the calibre of the entries and it was difficult to reach a final 30. It’s a good sign for the future of British TV and film that we have so much talent coming through.
