Bridge and Tunnel
Bridge + Tunnel is a BAFTA-nominated media production established in 1997 by award winning-director and producer Tina Gharavi, in Newcastle, England to support “unheard voices, untold stories”.
Bridge + Tunnel was founded on a principle of producing work with uncompromising creative vision, cultural sensitivity and artistic experimentation, our portfolio of award-winning work encompasses groundbreaking experimental documentaries (Mother Country for Channel Four), fiction and short films (Featherhead, Closer, People Like Us, King of South Shields,) installations and interactive digital projects (Last of the Dictionary Men, Wiki: Wonderland, Tribalism is Killing Us) as well as feature films, including the 2013 BAFTA-nominated drama I Am Nasrine as well as The Good Iranian currently in development with Film Four and BFI as well as Back-Up Media (Paris) through the new European wing of the company, Bridge + Tunnel France.
Bridge + Tunnel films and documentaries have been screened internationally at festivals including the American Film Institute, official selections at the Sundance Film Festival, IDFA, Edinburgh Film Festival and broadcast on many channels including the Sundance Channel, ITV, TCM and Channel 4. Bridge + Tunnel has also produced record-beating museum exhibitions and provided media production training for hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers, and other vulnerable groups. The Company is constantly seeking ways to bring “untold stories, unheard voices” to wider audiences and it plans to remain small and agile enough to take on the kind of high risk, high reward projects that other production houses tend to shy away from.
Sir Ben Kingsley, the projects patron, called I Am Nasrine “an important and much needed film.” B+T already has it’s second major feature The Good Iranian in development with FilmFour and BFI attached.
