  • About Us

    How we work

    Film and Tell aims to create positive change. By pairing high quality documentaries with extensive outreach and creative advocacy, we engage the audience to create positive impact. Our analysis and method are based on a thorough understanding of the constantly changing digital landscape and the complexity of storytelling. We produce documentary features, documentary shorts and film festivals, all of them combined with outreach, and if appropriate, with goals to create social change. Today we work with many types of organizations, companies, agencies, institutions, broadcasters, trust funds, film funds and philanthropists.

    The company released its first documentary in 2013, the short documentary Go Straight Home (11')directed by Maud Nycander (Palme) and Iga Mikler (Eating Lunch).

    One of Film and Tell’s most successful project to date, SEE THE KIDS, is a project raising the issue of children witnessing domestic violence. It’s based on a documentary double-feature: My life my lesson (2014) and Say Something (2015), both directed by award winning director Åsa Ekman. Both films had world premieres at IDFA and has so far won Best Feature at Nordic/Docs, a Kristallen (the official Swedish television Award) and been nominated for a Guldbagge (the official Swedish film award). The films have reached over 5 million viewers and have pointed out the need for support and treatment to eventually achieve a legislative change in Sweden (to criminalize the act of domestic violence in the presence of children). 

    At present, Film and Tell has a strong slate of seven projects in development and production.
