About Us

Welcome to The Producers’ Forum website.  We are an independent organisation serving the vibrant community of filmmakers and content producers, in Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond.

Our membership includes Producers, Writers and Directors as well as a good mix of DOPs, Editors, Art Directors, Sound Recordists and Composers as well as lots of others! We began as just a handful of producers trying to help each other out back in 2003 and have grown to a much wider group with a strong regional and national influence that helps us develop our careers, connect with others, have a voice and grow our creative endeavours.


'Producing the Producer.....the Producers Forum, through its various industry initiatives, is an ever present pulse at the beating heart of the vibrant independent film making culture in the city and region....'

Roger Shannon
Exec Producer and Professor of Film

We aim to be at the forefront of film and media related issues. We provide training, networking, master classes and mentoring via peer to peer and leading figures in the industry. In an industry currently undergoing profound change, we provide a unified lobbying voice. TOGETHER we believe we can make a real difference to our own and other members' creative endeavours, and our industry.

We are developing strategic relationships with key partners like Creative England, Film Birmingham, Birmingham City University amongst others and are delighted to be working alongside mac Birmingham: see below. To sponsor the Forum from as little as £300, email pip@bluehippomedia.com!
