Endor Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, will see its new feature film Gwen included in the ‘Great 8’ showcase in Cannes next week.

The ‘Great 8’ sees the BFI, BBC Films and Film4, in collaboration with the British Council and the UK government’s ‘Great’ campaign, showcase up-and-coming UK talent with projects in the market.

Gwen will be highlighted on Tuesday 8 May during a private reception for buyers and financiers at the Gray d’Albion beach. The lineup includes projects in post-production, which have a strong chance at critical and/or commercial success.

Directed by William McGregor, Gwen is a gothic mystery that follows a young girl who desperately tries to hold her family together in the face of a hostile local community, a rapacious slate mine nearing their land and a growing darkness that has begun to haunt her home life. Maxine Peake stars.

The film had a working title of The Dark Outside, and is distributed by Great Point Media.
