Aleem Khan and Toby Fell-Holden take part in NET.WORK@LFF

Aleem Khan and Toby Fell-Holden are two of fifteen participants chosen for NET.WORK@LFF 2016, the professional development programme at this year’s BFI London Film Festival.

Aleem Khan’s short film, THREE BROTHERS, was nominated for a BAFTA in 2015, and he was one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow in 2015. He is now developing a couple of feature length screenplays one of which, AFTER LOVE, is in development with The Bureau Film company and has development funding from Creative England.

Toby Fell-Holden’s short BALCONY won a Crystal Bear at Berlin Flickerfest, along with a nomination for Best British Short at the BIFAs. He is currently working on his first feature as well as other screenplays with director Ramin Bahrani and producer Afolabi Kuti in New York and London, respectively.

Lizzie Franke, Senior Production Executive for the BFI, commends the participants for ‘representing some of the finest new writers and directors coming out of the UK who have already proven themselves with award-winning shorts, low budget features, theatre and TV work.’
