‘A Very European Christmas’ aims to be an international film. Each of the cast of 12 comes from a different country and subtitles will be provided in several languages.

This is the latest film from production start-up Econ Films, making movies about how the economy affects us all. Econ Films is run by British Writer- Director Bob Denham, an economics PhD dropout who has flirted with journalism, political activism and investment banking. Econ Films have teamed up with Ludere Productions, run by actress and producer Lara Doree. Joining them both is online entertainment specialist Elisar Cabrera.
Writer-Director Bob Denham adds: ‘This film was made in south London on a budget the IMF would be proud of. Think what might be possible with a few more loans.’
