HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - June 12 - Five short film projects from teams of all-female writers, directors and producers will now receive funding from dating app Bumble. The Female Film Force, now in its second year and having expanded from the U.K. and Ireland to also include France and Germany, selects five short film projects from teams of all-female writers, directors and producers which get fully funded and supported by teams of mentors. This year, ~1,300 pitches were received. The five winning projects include a comedic drama about Queen Victoria's post-natal depression, a story about a British-Nigerian girl at a traditional English boarding school, a comedy about a grounded plane full of religious party animals, a French animation film about mental health and a German documentary shining a light on feminist views in Berlin. The funding will help launch these women into the industry.
