At the last round of the RADF, funding was granted for a collaborative artist workshop on the island for local writer Donna Cameron to develop her stage play The Salt Maiden into a screenplay. The resulting pre-production material will be used to support director Beverley Callow to apply for further funding with the intention to make the film on the island where it was first written.
