Maverick, lo-fi, outsider producers Pinball Films and director Ashley Horner (pictured above) have been nominated as one of Creative England’s 50 most exciting creative companies in the country right now.

CE50, a showcase of the best up and coming, innovative and disruptive companies across film, games and digital tech sees Industry leaders come together on Thursday 24th May at Facebook HQ, London to drive a creative revolution and shape the future.

From the punk-fuelled hybrid documentary The Hippies: Punk rocked my Cradle currently shooting, to the gorgeously erotic feature BrilliantLove, Pinball Films have forged a reputation as the bravest and most daring makers of British cinema for a decade, colluding with the twisted talents of Matt Hulse, Sean Conway, Martin Radich and NY’s finest Rona Mark.

Next up for Horner is Bear, a supernatural Nordic horror that’s written by BNerdly’s very own Stuart Wright and is to be produced with Keith Bell (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) and Uberman a dark sci-fi road movie set in their hometown of Newcastle.

A heady cocktail of talent, imagination, collaboration and skill mean you can look forward to another ten years of vital, anarchic cinema from Pinball Films.

Hosted by Georgie Barratt of The Gadget Show, CE50 attracts keynotes from policy-makers, illuminating tech demos and industry-leading panel discussions. Speakers this year include Sir Peter Bazalgette, Lemn Sissay & Caroline Norbury. Previous CE50 innovators have gone on to receive BAFTA nominations, revolutionised the way western products are sold to the Chinese market, and received the prestigious Nora Ephron prize at the Tribeca Film Festival.
