County Lines actress gets 2021 BAFTA nomination!

Congratulations to Ashley Madekwe for her nomination at BAFTA as “best supporting actress” for her role in County Lines! Produced by “Broder Blake”, “Poisson Rouge Pictures” and “Belga Productions” as a proud co-producer. With the support of Belga Films Fund’s Tax Shelter.

Huge success (we mean H-U-G-E!!!!) on Netflix for Belga Films Fund-backed Bigfoot Family!

nWave is Belgium’s most successful animation studio. Their most recent project, Bigfoot Family, was released in theaters worldwide in the summer and fall of 2020. But for territories such as the USA, the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, the streaming platform Netflix acquired the distribution rights.

The result? A blockbuster result! Bigfoot Family remained at the very top spot of the Netflix screening charts for 7 consecutive days in the USA and Canada (yes, that’s the #1 position, all formats & projects included!).

Belga Films Fund brings approx. 5M€ of Tax Shelter to each nWave projects since 2015. Belga Films releases nWave projects in theaters and across all channels in the Benelux.

If you want to know how Belga Films Fund can help you optimize your project’s financing plan & budget through a co-productions with Belgium (in animation but also in feature films, TV series, etc), please do contact us at belgaproductions@belgafilms.be.
