We Love Telling Stories That Inspire Us

Speakit Films was established by film director and producer team Nick Francis and Marc Francis to make compelling and thought-provoking films for audiences across the world.

The company is best known for the award-winning Sundance hit ‘’Black Gold’’ which was released internationally and changed the way millions of people thought about coffee.

Speakit’s second feature was the highly acclaimed BBC, ARTE co-production When China Met Africa. – described by the Times “as a rare grass roots view into one of the most important economic challenges of our age”.

Films produced by Speakit have been by the Sundance Institute, the British Documentary Film Foundation, the UK Film Council, CNC and EU Media Fund.

Speakit’s films have been released in cinemas and on television in over 40 countries and on major TV networks such as BBC Channel 4, Arte France, PBS, NHK, Al-Jazeera, NRK, SVT, VPRO, YLE, National Geographic and SABC.
