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.


Our project, Transforming Cinema, aiming to bring a transgender film festival to Sheffield, was one of five finalists in the National Lottery Fund and ITV’s The People’s Project in 2016. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in winning the funding we had hoped to secure in order to put on a film making course as well as a national festival, but we are still determined to make Transforming Cinema happen!

As part of the competition the two runners up were able to apply for a smaller amount of funding for their projects. We were awarded £5,000 from The Big Lottery Fund, which we will be using to run Transforming Cinema this November 2016.

To find out more about this project, please go to the Transforming Cinema project page.

ITV produced a video on Transforming Cinema as part of The People’s Project. You can watch it below.

Here’s what MD Claire Watkinson, Chair Bella Qvist and our friends and supporters had to say about Transforming Cinema. The video was created during the two weeks of campaigning.
