The Raising Films Kitemark

Planning is underway to formalise a Raising Films kitemark to recognise productions, initiatives and activities that sing to our mission and ethos.

The mark had its informal and inaugural outing during BFI FLARE in 2017 when the closing credits of A DEAL WITH THE UNIVERSE included the stamp of ‘Made During School Hours’ – a post-production ethic championed by the film’s creative team; Jason Barker (writer-director), Rachel Meyrick (editor) and Loran Dunn (producer).

We’re exploring how to formalise the kitemark and how to make the process of claiming it as simple as possible. All news and developments will be shared here, through our newsletter and over on social media.

In the meantime here’s more about A DEAL WITH THE UNIVERSE and another project that is truly Raising Films.
