IFilm takes long view of short pix from QFE team

Netcaster inks first-look deal

Netcaster iFilm has inked a three-year, first-look deal with Quality Filmed Entertainment, a production and management shingle that produced the cult hit short “George Lucas in Love” and is home to a roster of other aspiring filmmakers.

The now-Los Angeles-based iFilm will have first access to short films produced by QFE’s young stable of directors, giving them more exposure via the Web. QFE’s library of short films will now be housed on iFilm.com. No cash is involved in the deal, something not unusual for iFilm, which Netcasts every short it receives.

Deal is similar to iFilm’s pact with management production outfit Bender-Spink, which helped ink a deal between 20th Century Fox TV and the tyro filmmakers behind short pic “Sunday’s Game,” after it was screened on iFilmpro.com.

Headed by recent USC alums Gary Bryman and Steven Hein, QFE specializes in jump-starting careers of young writers and directors through short films. It also is developing a slate of feature-length pics and TV series.

Twentysomethings Eric Kripke, Charlie Call and Trevor Sands are also partners in the venture.

Recent pics to come out of the QFE banner include “Battle of the Sexes,” “Truly Committed” and upcoming pics “Why 2 K” and “Da Sixth Sense.”

“Billy Jones,” helmed by Christopher Bell, will screen during this week’s Yahoo! Online Film Festival.

Deal was brokered by Endeavor and Michael Schenkman of Bloom, Hergott, Diemer and Cook.
