Fortune Cookies Feature Film: Supporting Artist Roles

Fortune Cookies Feature Film: Supporting Artist Roles

Northampton, UK. Apply from all UK.
Listed by View details

Fortune Cookies will be the 3rd feature film to be produced by social enterprise film company Screen Northants. Check us out on Youtube. Screen Northants makes features but does so in a non-profit model, supported by BBC Children in Need, where a professional crew also provide workshops and on set experiences for local young disadvantaged people from Northamptonshire to boost their confidence, skills and local pride through Film.

The viewer will not notice the difference in the end result but it allows us to make films in a unique way supporting the next generation of talent and allowing unprecedented access to the Film Industry for young people in an area under-represented by Film. We are supported by the likes of Panavision, Panalux and Cooke Optics to make our small budgets go a long way.


1997 was a big year in history. Titanic was released, the first Harry Potter book was published, Things Can Only Get Better blared through the streets, we won Eurovision for what turned out to be the last time and the Lee Family got the chance to appear on their favourite TV game show Fame To Fortune.

And the Lees really need this – their family Chinese takeaway isn’t doing very well and they are at risk of losing it. But as luck would have it, their many many prayers have been answered and they have been selected to appear on Fame To Fortune, the game show they pretend they’re on behind the takeaway counter on a quiet night led by youngest sibling Jenny Lee who has an unnerving obsession with unlikely crush Frank Fox, the show’s host.

But there’s a big problem. Oldest daughter Susan, the black sheep, has been auditioning for a play behind her father Cyril’s back. And she’s got the lead role. Cyril could probably forgive her for getting caught up in her silly dreams in time but it turns out opening night is the same night as Fame To Fortune….
