The Programme for 2022

Funded by London’s Violence Reduction Unit, designed and  delivered by Chocolate Films, LDN Filmmakers places an emphasis on giving young people a platform for their views, opinions and perspectives. Through writing, directing and production, participants are encouraged to share their stories of life in London -stories that tend to be overlooked or misrepresented in mainstream media.


You can watch some of the films, or go behind the scenes to see how the programme has helped participants shape valuable skills for the future. From communication to teamwork to self-belief, film-making has the power to unlock potential in many ways.

London’s Violence Reduction Unit

Working with people and organisations from within communities where violence is prevalent, we try to understand the complex causes of violence and, working together, prevent it from happening. We know that the best time to stop violence is before it starts. We use research, data and intelligence to better understand why violence occurs.


We champion and promote the voice of young people. 


London’s VRU listens to local people and works alongside communities to push for greater investment to deliver local change.


We are committed to an approach that is rooted in prevention and early intervention, and ensure our focus and investment creates genuine positive opportunities for involvement.
