the tentmaster's daughter

Patchwork Productions is delighted to announce that we have received funding from Creative Europe for our feature film The Tentmaster’s Daughter.

Based on a true story, The Tentmaster’s Daughter follows the story of a teenage girl who joins her estranged father and his new family in their life with a travelling circus. 15-year-old Jess gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard work, hard partying and young love as she criss-crosses the UK with a band of outsiders.

The grant was awarded amid stiff competition; from 296 applications from 32 countries, only three UK productions received funding. The funding is designed to support projects with international potential for cinema, television or digital platforms. This round of selections includes 10 animations, 19 documentaries and 36 fiction projects.
