Investing in motion pictures is one of the best investments you can make. Now with the explosion of Video on Demand (VOD) subscriptions changing the way people access their films, distribution is now easier than ever before and can continue to generate a profit for a lifetime!

The United Kingdom has a great heritage of filmmaking and talent, ever since the world’s first moving picture was shot in Leeds in 1888. Today, many independent British companies offer film investment opportunities, allowing them and their product to remain truly independent.

Utilising smaller budgets than their major studio counterparts, investment in independent film offers the potential for more profits with substantially less risk. With more and more opportunities for home media viewing, films do not need an expensive box office run for the investor to recoup the original investment.

Investing in Film

Many British independent film production companies offer Film Investment opportunities.

This fairly recent move allows these companies to remain truly independent and in control of their films, offering audiences different and unique projects and offering investors a returns opportunity that can last a lifetime.

Being independent and utilising smaller budgets offers investors the chance to make more profit on their investment with less risk than traditional larger budgeted films.

This means the films don’t need to huge successes on release to recoup the original investment and move into profit. This is the benefit of investing in independent cinema.

Investment Benefits

As well as making a return on your investment, there are number of extra benefits which are attached to investing in film such as:

  • The investor can have their name in the credits at the end of the film
  • The chance to be involved with the production of the film
  • The chance to meet the cast and crew backstage
  • An invitation to attend red carpet events including the film premier
  • VIP opportunities to attend special events such as the Berlin, Cannes and Venice Film Festivals
  • Sample merchandise
  • Tax relief benefits (Enterprise Investment Scheme, government sponsored scheme)

It is important to note that the above benefits are subject to the particular film and the amount invested in the project.

Investment Risks

As with any financial investment, there is always an element of risk and it is very important that you do not invest what you cannot afford to lose.

While it is not possible to guarantee the commercial success of any film project, we want the best for our investors and so we are very selective in the opportunities that we offer.
