Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight talks about new West Midlands film studio at MIPIM 2019


Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has revealed his vision for the new West Midlands film studio at the world’s largest investment show, MIPIM 2019.

The Brummie explained his ambitions to create a ‘neighbourhood’ around the studio, with potential mixed-use space to be made available for housing, bars and restaurants.

Working with the London Film Academy and British Film Institute, Knight wants to focus on creating apprenticeships for local people and to introduce a local Film Academy to train young people into both practical and technical roles in media production.
