COMING UP is a UK talent scheme where emerging film-makers have the opportunity to make an authored drama with a guaranteed network broadcast. Now in its eighth year, IWC and Channel4 continue their commitment to innovation, experimentation and new voices.

We will make up to 7 challenging and individual films from the best new talent in the UK. Each film will be for an half-hour hour C4 slot and we are looking for Films that push boundaries in a way that wouldn’t / couldn’t be done in mainstream drama and that can be shot in 4 days on a limited budget.

This is not an entry level scheme ´ but for writers and directors building a track record and a career in film and television drama. Submissions from multi-cultural and regionally-based filmmakers are encouraged.
