United Kingdom Reparations Movie

Donation protected

Hi. My name is Chrystal Rose.

After years of being rejected for funding by the BBC and the BFI, I wrote, produced and directed a short film, 'Too Young For Love', which has now been selected for 15 film festivals all over the world. We have won 7, including Best Female Actress, Best Male Actor, Best Production Designer, Best International Short, Best Short and I have won Best Female Director and Best Director.

'Too Young For Love' had a world premiere in Cannes, courtesy of Next Step Film Festival and we're still quarter finalist, semi finalists and finalists in other festivals yet to be decided.

We now want to shoot a feature movie which I have written, will produce and direct. It's entitled, 'United Kingdom Reparations' and starts where 'Too Young For Love' ends.

For the past 3 years my full time job was looking after my wonderful Mum who sadly passed on 3rd May 2024. My Mum was the Executive Producer of 'Too Young For Love'. It's a shame that she is not here physically to experience the success, but she is certainly with me in spirit.

I shot 'Too Young For Love' over two days with a fantastic team of professionals and despite being told by the BBC that I have no talent, no creativity and no fresh ideas, the reaction to my short says vastly different. I am joining forces with key crew who I worked with on 'Too Young For Love' again to make 'United Kingdom Reparations'.

Please help us to prove the funders wrong yet again. Creatives should be supported regardless of colour, age and experience.

In order to progress and produce 'United Kingdom Reparations', I need to raise finance and hope that you will be able to help.
