Minnow Films is an award-winning independent production company, renowned for its sensitive and intelligent portrayal of powerful human stories. Its work focuses on producing bold and ground breaking films that sit at the very cutting edge of documentary making.
Founded in 2006 by filmmaker Morgan Matthews, Minnow quickly established a reputation for bringing a fresh take to challenging and moving stories, such as the BAFTA and RTS winning The Fallen, a film described by the BBC as its most ambitious single documentary film to date.
Minnow has gone on to garner both critical acclaim and award recognition, with films such as the BAFTA nominated Scenes from a Teenage Killing, and high profile Afghanistan series Fighting on the Frontline.
