A talent-led company, focusing on live-action and animation

With one hand on the pulse of the UK film industry and the other on the thriving energy of regional and European filmmakers, we produce talent-led films from innovative voices.


Set up by BAFTA winning, Oscar nominated producer Chris Hees, we thrive as a company by creating the right connections in the right places. 

Based in Hull, Dublin and London we are determined to bridge the gap between the core of the industry in the UK capital and the development of talent, ideas and housing of productions within the regions and across Europe.

Having been awarded the BFI Vision Award 2017, Bridge Way Films is now collaborating with recognised and emerging filmmakers to build a slate of independent, character driven and auteur-led British films that have the potential to reach an international audience.

We focus primarily on two types of films: compelling regional dramas and comedy-dramas that portray UK society in an authentic and unapologetic way; and edgy dark-comedies and thrillers with a European flavour that push the boundaries of standard genre. We choose carefully writer/directors with a distinctive voice who are able to communicate to a wide audience.

  • As a company, we are also committed to the future of our film industry. Our regional education programmes bring together a mixture of masterclasses and methods of ‘learning by doing’ to equip filmmakers with knowledge to help them make their first steps in to the industry.

  • We are also an active member of the UK's Producer Roundtable and our founder is on the steering committee for the British Screen Forum.
