Strong Support for Detained/Förvaret

RåFILM:s feature documentary project Detained (working title) has received several grants during the autumn 2013.

In September the project was one of six cultural project selected out of 467(!) submission to receive a Cultural Grant from the Swedish Church and in November we received a production grant from Kulturbryggan, a public fund which gives support to innovative cultural projects.

The directors, Anna Persson and Shaon Chakraborty, and the producer Anna Weitz have also been selected to take part in STHLM Debut, a talent programme for feature film debut directors and producers in the region of Stockholm-Mälardalen by Film Stockholm/Filmbasen, Stockholm Mälardalen Film Commission and Stockholm International Film Festival with Stockholm County Council as the main financier.

RåFILM and the team behind the film would like to thank everybody who have supported the development of this project and we look forward to work on the completion of the film, which is intended to premiere in early 2015.
