Meet indie filmmaker Rob Heydon who wrote, produced and directed Irvine Welsh’s ‘Ecstacy’. He gives ÉCU some tips when trying to sell your film in the highly competitive Cannes market.

Are you talented enough?
Are you creative enough?
Are you BRAVE enough?

If you’re a storyteller, a visionary, an innovator or a technical genius with the determination to realise your dream, then get out there and make your film. Once it’s done send it to us, and we’ll take it from there. We are continually searching for the world’s best indie films and perhaps you’ve got it.
