Ascendant Films is an Independent production company funded by film producer and director Bart Ruspoli.
Ascendant Films focuses on finding new and exciting talent in front of and behind the camera. We search for stories with something to say, scripts that bring a fresh approach to a genre, and focus on giving new talent a chance alongside established filmmakers and actors.
“The crew from 'Ire' that gave us their talents and time and daily commitment, was breathtaking. To have such a team made the whole experience of my first feature as a director an incredible memory and I’ll be forever grateful." Director, Ross McCall
“I think most people live 9-5 lives which can be mundane from time to time. So they can live vicariously through these characters, and it’s great because you can enjoy violence and bad behaviour without engaging in it yourself.”
George Russo, co-writer of Villain.
