Midlands Film and Media CIC is a newly launched Community Interest Company, set up to help grassroots micro budget independent film makers and other creatives, working with small/no budgets, in the Midlands.
The CICs aim is to build confidence, develop ambition and enable individuals and businesses to grow through media.
They plan to run projects that make a difference to the lives of people across the region.
Louise James, Volunteer Fundraiser said: “Any profits or activities that the CIC does that brings money into the organisation, will be re-invested back into the CIC to help our social aims.
“We will also be donating a percentage of that money to our Asset Lock, which is the Derby and Burtons Hospital Charity. Our goal is to raise at least £25,000 for the Derby and Burtons Hospital Charity this year”.
In the coming weeks Midlands Film and Media CIC will be launching one of its first fundraising events. Vicky Carey, Fundraising/Events/Lottery Officer at Derby and Burtons Hospital Charity said: “We are delighted that Midlands Film and Media CIC have chosen Derby and Burtons Hospital Charity as their Asset Lock and are grateful that we will benefit from their business activities”.
