17 MEDIA-supported films selected for IFFR

The International Film Festival Rotterdam (22 January to 2 February), funded through Creative Europe’s Film Festivals scheme, has announced its full programme for 2020, including 17 MEDIA-funded films, with two UK co-productions featured.

Fanny Lye Deliver’d, directed by Thomas Clay, is a drama set on a Shropshire farm in 1657. It tells the story of Fanny Lye, and how the arrival of two strangers shakes up her Puritanical existence to its very core. The film stars Maxine Peake, Charles Dance and Freddie Fox. 

Little Joe, directed by Jessica Hausner, is a science fiction film that was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The film follows Alice and Chris, played by Emily Beecham and Ben Whishaw, and their work developing a new plant species at a corporate laboratory.
