Sideways Film is a documentary and factual sales agency established in 2010 that specialises in worldwide Broadcast, VOD, All Rights, Educational and in-flight licensing. We work closely with our filmmakers to ensure that every title offers a unique perspective and gets the attention it deserves.

We take a huge amount of pride in the films that we represent and continue to market our films for as long as there are territories available and the subject matter is relevant. Our films do not get lost in our catalogue as we take on a very limited number of new titles – a maximum of fifteen per year – which also enables us to find opportunities tailored to each film.

Our favoured way of doing business is face-to-face; if you want to meet with us we will most likely be at the next festival or market you are attending. We rely on in-person meetings with clients to keep them informed of our new titles, follow up on films we may still have pending and to keep up to speed on new channels, slots or even advances in the mediums with which we can reach audiences. We attend at least eighteen markets and festivals across every continent each year.

We are now taking on a very limited number of projects as production partners and in this capacity we are involved both editorially and in closing the budget through match-making co-productions, pre-sales and film funds, and building the best possible team around your film.
