SNAP SHOT - is a taut mystery thriller that reunites a self-indulgent group of eight friends in London for a birthday party on the eve of a traditional hunting trip. 
The evening becomes charged with a whole new meaning as the group is rejoined by Julia Kelso, a razor sharp investigative television journalist recovering from a harrowing abduction while on assignment abroad, that has transformed her into a hardened, guarded and cautious woman. Having not all gathered together for a couple of years, since the last fateful hunting trip taken by the men of the group - Oliver Kirkwood, Geoffrey Hall, Rupert Colherne, Colin Filmount and their mentor, the slightly older, charismatic life-long hunter Harry Ames, whereby Geoffrey mistakenly shot and killed a total stranger innocently walking in the forest. Old tensions soon resurface, a result of Geoffrey's crippling guilt. The party soon turns into a compelling 'whodunit' as unresolved resentments, intrigue and suspicions boil over in this small group, as Julia covertly tries to extract the truth of what really happened, while hiding her own secrets.

Germany Courting Hollywood with New Film Fund

With the decision to double the budget of the film support granted by the state of Germany (from €75 million to €150 million) by next year, the German government aims to consolidate the competitiveness of Germany as a filming location. Besides the German Federal Film Fund that already supports productions once they are shooting in Germany, an additional new German Federal Film Fund will provide incentives for big-budget films from Germany and abroad. The announcement by Monika Grütters, Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, follows the German film industry’s requests for structures that will attract producers from other countries so as to create more business for German film studios and VFX companies. This collaboration with international crews is expected to lead to a professionalisation of German film teams.
