Hetain Patel and Amy May's hugely original collision of film, performance and live music
CENTURY FILMS is known as one of the most pioneering and innovative production companies in the UK. We make both drama and documentary, and we sometimes explore the areas in between – we don’t like to be restricted by dogma about genre.
We pioneered the documentary musical with the BAFTA-winning Feltham Sings and the RTS-winning Drinking for England and later, the critically acclaimed Songbirds. Most recently we’ve continued our documentary musical journey with our most ambitious film yet – Mumbai High: A Musical. Our drama output includes the double BAFTA-winning Falling Apart starring Mark Strong and Hermione Norris. Billie Piper starred in our award-winning feature-length drama, Bella and the Boys. We also worked with some distinguished actors in our hard-hitting series, The True Voice of… and the Grierson-winning Consent was a hybrid drama documentary about a rape trial.
Our documentary output is some of the freshest and most incisive in the country and we’re known as a home for the best and most ambitious directors in Britain. We had great critical and popular success recently with The Secret History of our Streets, a series about how property shapes our lives.
