Belonging - Inspired Film & Video

A feature length documentary worked on by Staffordshire production company Inspired Film & Video has won Best Documentary at the Cardiff International Film Festival 2017.

Belonging – The Truth Behind The Headlines has already caused ripples due to its controversial attack on the way government and companies colluded to break the trade unions, and has received high praise from acclaimed British director Ken Loach.

Michael McDonald, business development director at Inspired Film & Video, said  producer Morag Livingstone originally made contact on Google.

“She got in touch as part of the documentary features interviews with some postmen in Stoke,” he said, “and when we got talking we got on really well and we became more heavily involved working on editing, colour and sound as well as the filming in Stoke.”

“She’s a very passionate filmmaker and she likes to tackle injustice, taking on governments and big corporations if needed, and we certainly hope will be working together again in the future.

“We were delighted when we found out it had picked up an award, we are so proud to have been involved and we’re hoping the documentary will be aired on television at some stage soon.”
