Who we are

We believe that high quality and compelling films made with creativity and passion can change the way we relate to ourselves and the world we live in.

Founded in 2004 by filmmaker brothers Nick Francis & Marc J. Francis, Speakit has become renowned for its imaginative and sensitive treatment of the most pressing global issues and human stories of our time.

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, Arte France, and the Sundance Institute.

Speakit’s latest film is Walk With Me, a cinematic journey into the world of mindfulness and Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, the film is due for release in 2017.

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