“We are thrilled to accounce the launch of the CHEERIO Short Film Fund, founded to promote and support the work of promising young filmmakers.
Each year, the Fund will award two to three filmmakers a £5,000 grat to make a short film that reflects CHEERIO’s ethos; to intigue, disturb and thrill in the spirit of Francis Bacon.

Edie Lawrence has been awarded the grant for Autophagy, a claymation film exploring class, unaffordable health care and inequality via a waterborne disease that turns those afflicted into octopi. The film will go into production early next year, with release scheduled for Autumn 2022.”
