Spotlight: Banijay UK and Advance create ‘I am with her’

Advance and Banijay UK  collaborated to create and launch the ‘I am with her’ film. Highlighting the stories of women and girls who experience domestic abuse and those affected by the criminal justice system, the new campaign raised awareness of the various forms of domestic abuse to trigger national recognition, support and funding for victims and survivors.

Banijay UK, part of Banijay, delivers award-winning multi-genre content to all of the UK’s major broadcasters, as well as the world’s leading SVOD platforms. The division boasts an impressive heritage, bringing together the industry’s best creative talent and programme makers, with programmes such as Eat Well for Less, Location Location Location, The Secret Life of 4,5, 6 Year Olds.

Kate, Director of Group Communications – “We’re so glad we could provide our services on such a significant project. Bringing together production talent across the business, we worked with Advance to produce I Am With Her, a poignant film which draws attention to the diversity of cases the charity handles each year. With cases on the rise throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we were proud to support in educating the nation on the organisation’s valuable work and providing a beacon to direct those in need of the service.”

Miles, cinematographer – “The opportunity to help in the best way we can has been hugely rewarding and I hope we have helped Advance reach more people in need of the incredible work that they do.”

Niki Scordi, CEO of Advance – “There has never been a greater need for increased awareness of the signs of domestic abuse. Without the fantastic support and commitment of the Banijay team this campaign would not be possible. We hope through ‘I am with her’ we can raise much-needed funds to help victims and survivors of domestic abuse and encourage communities to let women and children know that ‘you are not alone’. No-one should live in fear of being hurt at home; it should be a safe place for all.”
