Meet the Creatures

We believe in Equality and Diversity to Educate and Nurture – so much so that we’ve even made these words, which make up our name, into little characters.

EDEN Film Productions - boom - equality

Equality – Boom poles are used for audio recording and it is important that audio levels are balanced and at the correct level. That is why our boom pole gets to symbolise how we tackle discrimination in society; by striving for balance and equality at all times.

EDEN Film Productions -lens - diversity

Diversity – Camera lenses come in all shapes and sizes and they have a variety of purposes. Our camera lens promotes and believes in the strength of diversity everywhere and she ensures that it forever remains one of our core aims.

EDEN Film Productions - clapper - educate

Educate – Clapperboards are used on film sets to educate directors, actors and editors about scenes, locations and shots. Our clapperboard helps us on our journey to educate others, be they students taking our classes or an audience watching our films; education is key to our success.

EDEN Film Productions - reel - nurture

Nurture – Film editing takes a lot of time, concentration and patience. Our editing reel ensures that we nurture our students, volunteers, employees and films so that we can continue to share powerful stories, raising vital awareness about Equality and Diversity around the world.

At E.D.E.N we believe in Equality and Diversity to Educate and Nurture. It’s the words that make up our name, it’s the mantra that leads our work and it’s what we most believe in; put simply it’s our core.

As firm advocates for LGBT+ equality worldwide we produce films with the aim of promoting equality and raising awareness of issues concerning the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. From our base in Sheffield, Yorkshire, we run workshops, we provide volunteering opportunities and we offer work experience placements. We educate the local community about equality and diversity whilst training aspiring media professionals and volunteers to reach their professional goals – and they make some pretty kickass films too. We are very proud of our graduates.

We are the organisers of Transforming Cinema, a film festival championing transgender, gender nonconforming, non binary and genderqueer voices. Putting trans stories at the centre stage, Transforming Cinema challenges the mainstream media’s lack of representation, showcasing trans, non binary and gender variant films and art. Featuring international films, expert speakers and engaging workshops as well as a range of creative projects and collaborations, Transforming Cinema welcomes one and all to come along and celebrate trans cinema.

We also film corporate and event films. The money we make from this goes back into the organisation financing our campaigns.

We dream of a better world and until we have reached that goal we will keep making films, driven by our passion for Equality, Diversity, Education and Nurturing. Will you join us?
