Western Edge Pictures and Gennaker Group are on board to produce and finance Toby Fell-Holden’s debut feature INCIDENT (working title).
Fell-Holden’s debut feature tells the story of a teenage girl who returns to the UK from abroad. After an accident at school, she soon becomes the subject of a witch hunt and attempts to keep her dangerous past hidden. The film will explore themes of radicalisation, sexuality and how a community treats an outsider.
INCIDENT will be produced by Tom Kimberley and Ali Mansuri, and Exec-Produced by Vaughan Sivell. Toby’s short film BALCONY, backed by WEP and Gennaker alongside Film London, was the first British film to win the Iris Prize and has won over 30 international short film prizes including a Silver Bear at Berlinale 2016.
Screen Star of Tomorrow Fell-Holden says “I'm thrilled to have WEP and Gennaker's continued support, their guidance has been invaluable and I'm excited to move forward on our feature project with them, which will continue to push the boundaries as we did in BALCONY."
Vaughan Sivell says “As he proved with BALCONY, Toby is one of the most exciting and original new voices in British film, and we’re thrilled to be continuing to work with him.”
