If you are looking for work as a filmmaker then one of the best ways to find it is to contact film production companies directly. We have therefore put together a list of 600+ London-based film production companies for you!
Each one of these companies specialises in something very different so we recommend that you first shortlist the companies that are the most relevant to you. Some of the production companies specialise in feature film production, some in commercial production, some in facebook ad production, some in event videography and some in showreel production. The companies are also of very different sizes. Some of the companies are massive organisations with hundreds of employees and some are small boutique companies with less than 10 employees.
It's worth pointing out that Facebook groups are also still a great place to find work especially if you're a freelancer looking to get jobs on smaller projects. It's also a great place to find new production companies that might not be on the list below. We have put together a few lists of useful Facebook groups which you can check out below:
