Jesse Lewis-Reece on 'Mother of Mine' inspiration...

"The birth of the idea that became the screenplay for the film was born out of my own personal  experience of suddenly losing my mother in the fall of 2021, this obviously had a huge impact on  myself and my family, particularly my dad , I wanted to explore the feelings of onset grief, the immediate after-effects of losing someone, an element Ifelt less explored in art and cinema than grief over a substantial period of time."

Crew & Cast
Pathfnder Fund

Pathfinder Fund 

The 'Pathfinder Fund' is a newly established rolling fund with the aim to recognise outstanding achievements, support projects of an elevated profile, champion noteworthy causes and help filmmakers with a clear trajectory to a debut or second feature film or series. Both Fiction and Non-Fiction projects are considered.

What we did in our Pilot round

In the development of this Fund we made the decision to support an exemplar project.

The filmmakers behind 'Mother of Mine' received a BAFTA nomination and critical acclaim for their last short film 'Eyelash', secured funding from the British Film Institute to make 'Mother of Mine' and attached outstanding talent on and off the screen. 

It was clear that this project would significantly contribute to the final steps towards a debut feature for the filmmakers. 

When will the Fund open? 

We aim to launch the rolling 'Pathfinder Fund' in the autumn of 2023.

Who can apply? 

The scheme will be open to writer/director/producer teams that can be made up of Bournemouth Film School (BFS) alumni and non-alumni or all alumni.
