afshan has been awarded Early Development Film Funding for a feature film loosely based on her one woman show How To Eat Mangoes.

The Early Development Fund is the first step in the BFI’s development support for live action and animated fiction projects from new feature writers. Successful applicants will receive a grant from the BFI together with oversight from a BFI NETWORK Talent Executive to support them in creating the documents. The Talent Executives provide creative input and feedback on the initial treatments and related work, and can assist projects in other ways: from connecting people with potential collaborators, to enabling them to consider how their ideas might impact with audiences.
