Core films is a new production company launching 2017 to develop and produce fiction feature films and television. We are looking for character-driven, high concept stories that can be shot at a budget commensurate with emerging talent. Core films is run by producer Emily Compton, and producer and director Ben Mole.

Emily began her career in post production, at Technicolor Creative Services. There she managed the Momentum Pictures account, who soon offered Emily her first job in distribution.

At Momentum Pictures she became Technical Manager – Europe, crossing all areas of distribution and working on the distribution of films like Insidious, Woman in Black and The King’s Speech.

As well as her Core Films commitments, she now also works at Altitude Film Distribution. Here she has helped distribute films such as the Oscar winning Moonlight, critically acclaimed Lady Macbeth, Bafta nominated The Eagle Huntress, and Oscar nominated I am Not Your Negro.
