My name is Mollie Leivars and I am a young filmmaker based in Kent, UK.
After having a bad experience at school, I decided to start creating films surrounding youth issues so that other young people knew that they were never alone in what they were going through!
I created my first short film in 2019 and have never looked back! I'm lucky enough to have had my films shown across schools and colleges in partnership with local police forces and have most recently been accepted into an LA film festival with my most recent short film, For The Love of Eve.
I came into the industry quite young and have dealt with the mental health implications of that, from burnout to imposter syndrome! Talking about experiences to ensure that no one feels alone in what they are feeling is something that I am very passionate about.
