"Our aim is to make film provoking for our audience"
Violafilms are an exciting new Kent based company, who have just launched their first project Magwitch. Co-founders, Writer Director Samuel Supple and Producer Debra McGee, first met on a documentary shoot and the company formed soon after. The work of violafilms is unique, thought provoking - and most of all, compelling.
We apply an inventive and creatively fresh approach to our films from development to delivery. We also support new talent so if you have an idea please get in touch.
