A Good Spell selected for Inside Out finance forum in Toronto

We are beyond thrilled to be one of the 8 projects selected for the Inside Out finance forum in Toronto with 'A Good Spell' from writer Michael Lee Richardson. Produced by Reece Cargan of Bombito Productions.


The forum is staged by Inside Out, the Canadian 2SLGBTQ+ film festival and content distributor, and designed to provide queer-led creative teams with 2SLGBTQ+ content an opportunity to pitch their projects directly to decision makers.


A Good Spell

Glasgow, 1970s. 13 year old Charlie Adair is an outcast, who prefers dancing to Kate Bush over playing football. When his mother tells him he’s a witch, Charlie has to learn to find power in his own uniqueness.

A Good Spell was selected for development with Torino Lab at treatment stage and is a current project on EAVE Producer's Workshop while at script and packaging stage. It has travelled Europe and now we start the journey to North America.


A Glasgow based film with a truly international appeal.



A Good Spell is one of the first projects of Short Circuit's first feature scheme and has been developed with the assistance of Screen Scotland and BFI NETWORK with its delivery partner Short Circuit.



Michael and Reece will be in attendance in Toronto from 1st June to pitch that witch!
