We are a Community Interest Company - this is halfway between a limited company and charity. What this means is that WhereWestBegins can only exist as long as it serves its community in South West, and the associated filmmakers, artists, producers, and cultural practioners that we work with.
We like to think that we are all big-hearted pioneers here in the South West.
“Out where the handclasp's a little stronger,
Out where the smile dwells a little longer,
That's where the West begins”.
