We cultivate ground breaking ideas into compelling films.

We are Speakit. A collective of thinkers, creators, explorers and storytellers renowned for our imaginative and sensitive treatment of the most pressing global issues and human stories of our time.

Founded in 2004 by filmmaker brothers Nick Francis & Marc J. Francis, Speakit believes that compelling films made with integrity and passion can truly have a positive impact on how we relate to ourselves and the world we live in. Speakit works with some of the world’s leading distributors, broadcasters, (BBC, Channel 4, Arte, PBS and NHK) and funding bodies (Sundance Institute, Britdoc, the BFI and the EU Media Fund) who value Speakit’s ethos.

Speakit’s most notable films to date include the award-winning Sundance hit ‘Black Gold’, which won worldwide critical acclaim and ‘When China Met Africa,’ – a multi-broadcast project involving BBC Storyville, Arte France, and the Sundance Institute.

In addition to producing cinematic documentaries and short films, Speakit also engages its audiences through innovative social media campaigns, and creates distribution strategies and partnerships with brands and organisations to spark conversations with audiences worldwide.

Today, Speakit is in development on a number of films and continues to work with the best talent and reputable organisations in the industry.
