Firecrest Films is an award-winning independent TV production company. In August 2020 we were shortlisted as one of the best production companies in the UK in the Edinburgh TV Festival Awards.
We are based in the stunning Fairfields building in Govan, Glasgow. Until the 1970s they produced the plans for ships in our office. Today we make high profile, high quality and high rating factual programmes for major broadcasters, including the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
We have twice been named as one of the Best Places to Work in TV by Broadcast magazine, which has also named Firecrest as the fastest growing independent TV company outside London. Last year we won more awards than any other Scottish indie and made a series of high impact films including the BBC Two hit series Murder Trial: The Disappearance of Margaret Fleming, and both the highest rating Panorama film for BBC1 and the highest rating Dispatches film for Channel 4.
In January 2017 the Channel 4 Growth Fund took an investment stake in Firecrest, enabling us to expand our creative team and diversify.
We're committed to growing the next generation of top television talent, both on screen and off. We invest heavily in our production staff to develop and train tomorrow's top documentary directors, journalists, producers and production managers. Many of our staff have been with us for a long time, and helped us grow.
We’d love to hear from you if you want to find out more about what we do.
