In the intensely competitive market of factual programme distribution, we thrive because we know the factual market inside-out. We started out as producers ourselves, and unlike other distributors, factual programming is all we do and all we've ever done. We've survived in this arena for 20 years and it’s taken stamina to beat the rest.

What Are We Looking For?

We’re looking for top quality documentaries as well as short magazine and news reports for worldwide distribution. We're particularly interested in topical and investigative films, however our catalogue covers a wide diversity, so if you think it's strong let us have a look! Great footage, strong characters, clear exposition and an English voiceover are ideal, whatever the genre.

Why Place Your Film With Us?

With 20 years in the business, Journeyman offers independent filmmakers and broadcasters a focused distribution outlet. We hate to see powerful documentaries shown once and forgotten - which is why we’ve become pioneers in niche marketing. Our multilingual team is dedicated to getting your film placed across the board. Our marketing strategy is multi-faceted and on the pulse, encompassing mailshots, telephone marketing, a Youtube site with 250k views a day, a preview site, a VOD site and the all-important personal meetings.

Journeyman's Filmmakers

Journeyman seeks out the best in factual production. We pride ourselves on the network of award-winning independents who bring us both news and documentaries. They know there's no one else who'll offer the same saturation of the market. In addition to this we represent the work of the UK’s Guardian Films, the BBC, Channel 4 and film director Ken Loach, Al Jazeera, Australia's ABC, Germany's ZDF, Sweden's SVT and many more.
