developing room films ltd is a multi-award winning British production company, specialising in young adult films.
We seek to create films for the youth of today. Exciting films. Beautiful films. Painful films.
Funny films. Films that show all the joy and heartbreak of being a young person
in 21st century Britain. Whatever the genre, we strive to produce art that not only
entertains our viewers, but invites them to think, feel and connect.
We are also committed to cultivating a supportive network & community for young creatives to develop and mature into artists. We know how hard it is to break into the industry and are determined to give eager, hardworking young people a chance to get real, hands-on production experience. Have a story that needs telling? Want to practice your filmmaking? Drop us a message, give us a buzz, and get involved!
Our debut motion picture was the coming-of-age student film Sticky Toffee Pudding, a teen drama about a boarding school student who falls in with the wrong crowd after losing his best friend. The film was made exclusively by a team of first-time student filmmakers and featured in a total of sixteen different festivals around the world, winning BritCon Film Festival's Best Feature Film Award (2020) & Changing Face International Film Festival's Best Fiction Feature Award (June, 2020). It is now available to buy or rent from Amazon Prime UK, Vimeo Worldwide, and select stores across America including Walmart.
Our sophomore production and debut short film is the proof-of-concept sports spoof comedy Swingers. The film is currently competing in international festivals, including BAFTA-qualifying festivals Carmarthen Bay Film Festival (2022) and Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (2021). It recently won the award for Best Acting at the London International Monthly Film Festival (September, 2021).
