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! Did you know that across 2021 and 2022, 45% of the cast & crew employed on the company's various short film projects were first-time filmmakers?

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). The film built a cult following online, and received worldwide distribution through Bayview Entertainment and Shoreline Entertainment. It is now available to buy or rent from Amazon Prime UKVimeo Worldwide, and select stores across America including Walmart.

Our sophomore production and debut short film was the proof-of-concept sports spoof comedy Swingers. The film qualified for the BAFTAs, screening at festivals such as Carmarthen Bay Film Festival (2022) and Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival (2021). It also won the award for Best Acting at the London International Monthly Film Festival (September, 2021).

Our latest short film project, the mental health fairytale The Girl and the Tide is currently finishing up a short but successful run on the London film festival circuit, with an online release date scheduled for Easter 2023.
