After choosing not to  pursue a career in Academia teaching film studies, Rebekah began her  film industry career in 2009, working as one of the producers of Wales’  most successful national horror film festival; the Abertoir Horror  Festival, and during that time began to develop a great knowledge of the  film festival business. Which led her to become inspired to start her  own innovative company in an industry she loved.
