Our Ambition

We aim to enter all our productions into as many film festivals as possible. We believe the success of our efforts means getting the film in front of as many people as possible. Having said that, the most important thing for us is the distribution of our films, not any accolades.


Alexandru R Films will always endeavour to offer fair compensation for the services provided by our teams of collaborators. At the moment, most of our productions are without funding. Each production will clearly indicate what budget is available and what compensation will be available for each role. Please note that funding applications may be ongoing and the status of the application may be pending at time you engage with us. For the avoidance of ambiguity, please assume you will be engaged on an Expenses Only basis unless otherwise stated.

With Funding: PAID
Minimum London Living Wage up to a maximum of £550 per day.

Without Funding: EXPENSES ONLY
Some expenses will be paid.

Money Awards

All awards income shall be divided as per your collaboration contract and usually depending on contribution. We aim to make this as fair as possible. All moneys obtained through Awards shall be first subject to deductions of the original costs of production and awards entry fees.


End Credits
An end credit title card will be attached to the film with all production cast and crew named.

Post Credit
Credit will be given in writing under every and any digital depiction of the motion picture, where it is possible to do so. Credit will always be given under each film at

IMDB credit
A description of our films will be made available on IMDB with the relevant credits given to our teams, subject to our disclaimer.

Minimum Compensation

As a minimum, you will have access to mentoring and support from top class talent. Your mentoring will be tailored to you, and can include career development, personal development, personal brand and marketing development, portfolio development and interpersonal development. We will always aim to provide support to all our collaborators but on rare occasions, this may not be possible.


Alexandru R Films, namely Alexandru R, is the sole custodian of any and all intellectual property rights, with the appropriate credits being given to all collaborators in a fair manner.


Alexandru R Films reserves the right to approve or reject end products if they are deemed unsuitable for public distribution. This will not impact your reference, but it may impact your credit on platforms such as IMDB.

If you are found in breach of your collaboration agreement, you may not receive credit for your work. Mostly, this will apply to extreme cases of gross misconduct or for the failure to deliver on commitments.

We do not do it for the awards. Although we are very grateful for any awards and recognition we will receive for our work, we will likely not promote any such accolades. The most important thing we always keep in mind is the story we tell and its impact on our society and community as a whole.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Alexandru R Films and its collaborators believe that positive representation matters. Positive representation matters because it can have a significant impact not just on individuals but on society as a whole. It plays a crucial role in increasing self-esteem, shaping perceptions, and breaking down harmful stereotypes. When people, especially those from marginalised groups, see themselves positively represented in media, companies and government, it can lead to greater self-confidence and a sense of belonging. This, in turn, can help create a more inclusive and understanding society. Positive representation also allows individuals to succeed based on their talent, without being restricted by demographics, leading to a fairer and more authentic industry.

Alexandru R Films is committed to telling queer stories. Although we are solely focused on telling LGBTQIA+ stories, you do not have to identify as LGBTQIA+ to work with us. We will never ask about someone’s sexual identity in order to determine their suitability for a role. We believe the best person for the job is the best person for the job. Having said that, we also acknowledge the impact of shared experiences and their contribution to our work and we ask all cast and crew members to demonstrate an empathic understanding of the stories we tell.

Alexandru R Films is committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity, sexual identity, faith, ethnic background or any other personal and/or protected characteristic. We believe that our differences make us who we are and that they add value to our work.

Alexandru R Films condemns sexism, homophobia, racism and their associated forms, and will intervene immediately when such incidents occur, either verbally or in writing.

Alexandru R Films acknowledges the lack of representation for minorities in cinema and aims to bridge that gap. We also acknowledge the gender disparity in our industry and aim to provide equitable resources and opportunities to everyone, regardless of their sex and background.

Alexandru R Films is committed to creating a healthy work environment, mentally and physically. Both mental and physical health is important to us. We will never compromise our commitment to either.

Please do not engage with Alexandru R Films if you do not share our understanding of the statements above.
