About us

A thriving British Indie on a mission to produce content that connects with audiences worldwide.

Founded in 2003 as Special Edition Films, and then restructured in 2014 as Special Edition Films London and Special Edition Films North to reflect a move into Factual Entertainment and overseas territories, we remain true to the simple idea of compelling story-telling in a fast-changing media landscape.

And while the way people watch our shows may have changed, we believe that what makes them ‘punch through’ remains the same: real lives, genuine emotion and questions that leave audiences thinking.

We’re proud of the fact that the people who’ve appeared in our films remain happy with the experience of working with us after broadcast and have even recommended us to other potential contributors.
