What Bad Crowd is
The main activity of Bad Crowd is film production and their editorial line concerns mostly art films with strong story lines and documentaries about social issues. Through their international network of artists, they aim to create artworks all over the world and count a great number of films, along with participation and award-winning at international festivals.
