Film Leicester
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Film Leicester’s philosophy is that it’s better to work together than on your own. Filmmaking is a collaborative process which can often require many people to participate in a production.
The platform is designed to enable Leicestershire’s filmmakers and talent to support and collaborate with one another so that Leicester can be known for producing some of the best independent films in the world.
The members in the community have understood that by leaving their ego at the door, they have allowed more opportunities for the group to develop, whatever their skill level may be. This means that the support offered to those starting out their careers is as valued as those who’ve been around in the industry for years.
