It’s an exciting day in celluloid with the arrival of a brand new lesbian film production company!

 

Kiki Archer has teamed up with author and entrepreneur, Jade Winters, to form production company: Winters and Archer Productions. Their aim is to create a trusted community of women intent on bringing the very best of lesbian fiction to the big screen. 

 

 

Having secured a private investment, the pair are excited to get started. After working independently on script-to-screen projects, Kiki described the pairing as: “a dream come true”.

 

“It’s been almost three years since my But She Is My Student script was completed. Obviously, it’s never completely completed, but I’ve been working with producers and directors for a couple of years now and, yes, there’s been interest, but the stumbling block has always been funding.

 

"Traditional production companies are very reticent to invest in LGBT feature films believing that the market’s too narrow. Well, we’re going to show them it’s not!”

 

Fellow author, Jade Winters, is also excited about making the leap into filmmaking. She said:

 

“Kiki’s a perfect match for me. We both have the drive and enthusiasm for lesbian fiction to make this project work. We chose to start with Kiki’s But She Is My Student screenplay because it’s a popular book that has already reached a broad audience and should resonate well with viewers. I hope the LGBT community will be as excited about this project as we are.”

 

We can’t wait to see more lesbian representation on the silver screen soon!
