Brexit: The Movie

Published on 10th March 2017 by

Brexit: The Movie is a 2016 feature length documentary which advocates for the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, the documentary was released around six weeks before the UK public voted on whether to leave in the EU or remain as a member. It includes contributions from various well-known Brexiteers including James Delingpole, Nigel Lawson, and Kate Hoey, as well as several academics.

The film was financed by donations, with 1800 contributors donating the £300,000 production budget and was published to YouTube and Vimeo for free viewing one day after the Leicester square premiere. It was watched almost 2 million times before the referendum on the 23rd June 2016.

The press reaction was of course very mixed, with eurosceptic media outlets like Breitbart News and the Daily Express praising the film and pro-EU publications pointing out the films obvious bias and inconsistencies.
