Firecrest Films is an independent television producer with an outstanding reputation for award-winning factual programmes.

We were named the best small independent production company in the UK at the 2022 Edinburgh TV Festival.

We specialise in ambitious premium documentaries, making films and series for major UK broadcasters and streamers.

Our office is in the stunning Fairfield building in Govan, Glasgow, once the greatest and most successful shipyard in the world. You can read more about this incredible space here.

In the last three years we've been nominated for more than thirty awards, including the BAFTA Scotland award for best Factual Series which we have won every year since 2018.

In addition Firecrest has been named one of the Best Places to Work in TV by Broadcast magazine for three years running, and Broadcast has cited Firecrest as the fastest growing independent TV company outside London.

We're committed to growing the next generation of top television talent, both on screen and off. We invest heavily to develop and train tomorrow's top documentary directors, producers, editors and production managers. Many of our staff have been with us for a long time, and helped us grow.

In January 2017 the Channel 4 Growth Fund took an investment stake in Firecrest, enabling us to expand our creative team and diversify.

We’d love to hear from you if you want to find out more about what we do.
