4Stories encourages talent currently under-represented in television drama – women, disabled people, BAME and those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with the objective to showcase talent, and kick-start promising careers.
Applications for directors close on 5 November but the producers will accept late entries from any directors who attend the screening.

Screening: 4Stories – On the Edge + Q&A
November 14th at 6pm
Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff
Free event but tickets need to be booked via Chapter
Created out of Channel 4’s major talent initiative 4stories, On the Edge is a bold and uncompromising three-part anthology looking at life in Britain today. These distinct but thematically linked films shine a light on key perspectives in criminal justice – the story of a victim, a witness, and a repeat offender – and serve up a raw slice of real life in contemporary Britain. Join executive producers Ben Bickerton and Phil Trethowan for more information on this year’s search for the next breakthrough filmmakers.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Ben Bickerton, Phil Trethowan and writers Janice Okoh and Georgia Christou.
The event is held in partnership with Wales Screen.
