New York City-based film distribution company Bleecker Street has taken North American rights to Ian Bonhote’s biopic documentary about Alexander McQueen.
Fully financed by Creativity Capital, McQueen delves into the life of Lee Alexander McQueen, an award wining British fashion designer who took his own life in 2010 at just forty years old.
Creativity Capital’s David Gilbery and Patrick Fischer are serving as executive producers.
We’re delighted to reveal two new funds are available for GAP and collateralised lending.
As well as secured loans to reduce UK tax credit or a pre-sale contract, our GAP lending fund gives an unsecured loan to a film set against its sales. This allows UK backers the capacity to reduce Producers lending cost on the investment.
Producers can access a range of finance at reduced rates saving them time and money, leaving them to focus on making great films.
Creativity Capital’s recent investment success includes BAFTA winner ‘Under The Shadow’, 2016 “Swallows & Amazons” and “The Recall” starring Wesley Snipes.
