Elevate Production Finance (EPF) is fast-becoming Australia’s leading film and television production financier. Operating internationally, in five short years EPF has helped fund a growing number of significant screen projects with aggregate budgets of more than AUD$445 million, having secured more than AUD$225 million of loan capital in a recent 18 month period.
Highlights include George Miller’s highly anticipated Three Thousand Years Of Longing starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, Australian box office hit, Never Too Late featuring Oscar® winner Jackie Weaver and Oscar® nominee James Cromwell (director Mark Lamprell), the Australian-Chinese co-production At Last, War Of The Worlds starring Eva Longoria, the Netflix hit 2067 and Blacklight, starring Liam Neeson.
For television, EPF has provided loan finance to Hoodlum for Five Bedrooms – Series 3, Ambience Entertainment for Barrumbi Kids and to Aquarius Films for Savage River.
In 2020, EPF led the way in its sector by redefining its assessment protocols in response to COVID-19 concerns. It was thus able to successfully provide debt funding to film and television production in Australia and New Zealand, even under pandemic conditions when insurance coverage was excluded.
The company is nimble, creative, adaptive and prepared to go the extra mile to see ideas blossom into successful entertainment.
