TENNER FILMS is a New London-UK based independent film venture, set up to produce socially and politically conscious documentary films from the grassroots up. First project is a provocative essay film tackling the thorny subject of nuclear energy.

In February Tenner Films went out to the Navajo reservation in New Mexico/Arizona to do some filming with Navajos living in the midst of one of the biggest uranium mining sites in the world. Mining ceased there in the 1980s but with the current stock market boom in uranium, there is renewed interest from mining companes who want to restart mining on Navajo land.
The trip was very successful, they met some incredible people including an 89 year old former miner and his family, and got some great footage. Tenner Films is now working on editing it all together and hope to produce a short stand-alone piece specifically on the Navajo situation as well as feeding this material into the main film in due course.
TENNER FILMS IS A GRASSROOTS PROJECT. THEY NEED ASSISTANCE FROM ANYONE WHO CAN OFFER IT TO HELP THE PROJECT MOVE FORWARD. TEN POUNDS (A TENNER AS THEY CALL IT HERE IN BLIGHTY!) OR ANY SUM YOU CAN MANAGE WOULD BE A HUGE HELP. AS THEY SAY, MIGHTY OAKS FROM LITTLE ACORNS GROW!
