Fred Grace started his filmaking career as a founding member of an award winning collective, producing and directing short documentaries for a host of different broadcasters and  beginning to combine political activism and filmaking.

Five Years ago, he and Gemma Atkinson set up Fat Rat Films, to make documentaries and films for charities they believed in.
