New Indie, LFA Productions, Announced

After ten years of 'educating' the industry The London Film Academy have announced that they are to branch out into production.
The academy, which has trained a generation of filmmakers who have gone on to work on titles such as Inglorious Basterds , X-Men and Storyville, has revealed that is setting up a newly-formed commercial Indie, LFA Productions.
Joint Principals, Daisy Gili and Anna MacDonald, will be joined by established television executive producer, Ri Chakraborty, merging their experiences and skills to produce a brand new independent production house. Their aim is to harness the talent of filmmakers to produce exciting and compelling factual and features for a variety of networks, with both domestic and international appeal.
Spearheading factual and features, Ri said: "We have an absolute commitment to nurture new and diverse talent, as well as produce a range of original and bold films which strike a chord with audiences and broadcasters. We have had fantastic feedback from broadcasters such as Channel 4. We will be showcasing a range of micro-documentaries looking at youth culture in the 1950’s at the V&A as a part of the Hanging Out Project later this year. This is a hugely exciting time to establish ourselves as a platform for outstanding production."
Daisy Gili, said: "Film production feels like a natural progression for London Film Academy. We have a talented network of alumni students and a credible tutor base that we look forward to collaborating with more in this new commercial venture which will also reinforce the nurturing environment we provide our filmmakers."
"Pioneering a high standard of work that resonates with audiences has been at the LFA’s heart since its foundation. We are very excited to be branching out with this viable commercial arm, as well as to initiating a new female-led indie," concluded Anna MacDonald.
