White Lantern Film has a range of movies currently in development seeking investment. If you would like to hear more about these movies and invest, please contact us on +441202 290743 or email invest@whitelantern.film


“The British film industry has now experienced 10 years consistent growth, with 2011 seeing £1 billion of cinema ticket sales,
up 5% in 2012”


We are developing our next slate of films and are looking for investors to join us on our new journey.  If you would like to play your own role in the movies, then we have an opportunity to subscribe for shares in a new company, White Lantern Film (2015) Ltd, under EIS.  The new company will produce a slate of three films spreading the investment across three different writers and directors producing three different movies.

Much like investing in startups, investing in films can be a high-risk, high-reward proposition, but the risks can be managed across a slate of films rather than investing in a single movie with your “eggs in one basket”.  While only big studios have access to large-budget blockbusters, individual investors can invest in independent British films which may provide the potential for compelling returns.

White Lantern Film creates movies which bring together the right combination of creative elements, industry champions and fiscal discipline to produce an independent film which can generate attractive non-correlated returns for equity participants.  Now, with innovative ways to produce revenue beyond box office receipts through digital and online sales, independent films are in a better position than ever to deliver returns to investors.

Invest in White Lantern Film through EIS and UK investors are able to offset considerable tax liabilities:

At White Lantern Film we make movies that make a difference.  We love film and from our base on the South coast of England, we use our passion to produce provocative pictures that say something about our world.

We have released the award-winning environmental documentary DRYING FOR FREEDOM, psychological thriller EMULSION and K-SHOP a tense and gruesome dark comic horror which sees a young student turn vigilante on the drunken thugs who caused the death of his kebab shop-owner father; now available on DVD, VOD and download.

We are also part of the BFI FILM ACADEMY, inspiring talented young film-makers and supporting the local film industry in our home town Bournemouth through BREEL, a regular film networking and screening event. To find out more visit our talent and community pages.

We share a wealth of expertise with our sister company THE LIGHT SIDE, our award-winning moving image agency.  The Light Side produces commercials, animations and content for brands including BT, Sainsburys, Garmin, Mizuno, Organix, LV and Sony.   With a range of production and post-production facilities at our disposal, the alignment between White Lantern Film and The Light Side creates a large, dynamic, creative force in the world of film, television and online content.

At White Lantern Film we believe its important to give something back. Our community programme complements our talent development initiatives by providing opportunities for those who would not normally engage in film to gain new insights and knowledge in film-making. Through expert lead talks for the U3A, In To Film educational projects and our own Project InsightIE, we help to breakdown barriers using film.
