Boost for movie makers.
The pounds 200,000 for micro studio Moxie Makers will help get low budget films off the ground.
Set up by Newcastle-based Ipso Facto Films, which has produced 11 features and more than 50 shorts and documentaries over the past 14 years, Moxie Makers will finance, produce and distribute four micro-budget features annually.
First up, will be a rockumentary Who Killed Nancy? based on Sex Pistol bassist Sid Viscious' relationship with Nancy Spungen.
Ipso Facto's founder Christine Alderson said: "For too many years talented film-makers with engaging stories and fresh, distinctive voices have had to fight with public and private financiers to get their first feature made."
Cash for the project was provided through an equity matching investment programme run by Entrust with pounds 100,000 from London-based post production company Moinaire.
