Observer, 10 December 2017

Mark Kermode wraps up his 2017 Films of the Year round-up with a tribute to both co-founder Hope Dickson Leach’s debut feature The Levelling and to Raising Films.

This year also saw the long-awaited release of The Levelling, a tremendous debut from writer-director Hope Dickson Leach. It’s a brilliant work from a film-maker who should also be commended for setting up Raising Films, a campaigning organisation whose suggestions for addressing harassment and discrimination in the UK film industry in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal offered some positive, practical responses to the horrors of this still unfolding story. Brava!
