What they say

The program

Latent Pictures is committed to promoting diversity in the film industry. By commissioning us, you are not only getting an industry-standard film production service, but you are also helping to start and develop the careers of underrepresented filmmakers. This, in turn, helps to diversify the film industry as a whole.

Not only will you be getting a top-quality product, but you’ll also be playing a part in making the film industry more inclusive for everyone.

We have a special focus on championing underrepresented filmmakers who are overlooked from LGBTQ, Female, ethnic minorities and low income backgrounds.



One-on-one guidance, advice, and support to help grow and develop as a professional.


Advanced learning opportunities, inviting interaction and question, led by an expert in their field.


Teaching everything you need to know about making films from pre production through to delivery.
