Welcome to MOLIMETRO ENTERTAINMENT
THE MOLIMETRO ENTERTAINMENT TEAM POSSESSES A DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE IN ALL ASPECTS OF FILM MAKING FROM POST-PRODUCTION, SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT, FILM DIRECTING, FILM FINANCE, MARKETING, SALES AND DISTRIBUTION.
MoliMetro Entertainment Ltd is a British Film Production Company structured for qualifying investors to take advantage of the tax benefits provided by an HMRC approved EIS Scheme. The Company’s focus is on selecting, developing, producing and securing distribution of commercial mainstream feature films with the potential for outstanding returns.
We believe that our attention to detail and investment model further supported by our strong industry partners, ensures that each film’s chance of performing strongly at the box office and across all other commercial platforms is greatly increased. This strategy of spreading risk is similar to the model that major Hollywood studios employ.
The management team of MoliMetro Entertainment draw on their expertise from MoliFilms Ltd and MoliFilms Entertainment Ltd.
MoliFilms Ltd was founded in late 2010 by Brad Moore and Mark Foligno with the intention of building a reputable and successful British film production company. Gareth Maxwell Roberts subsequently joined the team, and MoliFilms Ltd successfully raised £2.3million in EIS funds and produced three feature films: “Best Laid Plans”, “The Rise” and “Montana”. The three feature films have been successfully distributed internationally and have enjoyed considerable festival success.
MoliFilms Entertainment Ltd was set up by Brad Moore and Gareth Maxwell Roberts in late 2012 to raise £4m under the EIS. In 2016 MoliFilms Entertainment successfully self-released its first film Golden Years at over 200 cinema screens (Odeon, Empire, and independent) nationwide, many of them adding extra screenings after attendance proved greater than expected. Golden Years was released on DVD and digital platforms on 29th August 2016.
