About us

We are Green Lions, an award-winning production company creating films for TV, cinema and digital media. We are passionate filmmakers and we believe in the awesome power of documentary storytelling to change hearts and minds, to empower viewers, and generally help make sense of this crazy world.

The company is named after our first film LIONS ARE GREEN, the story of a colour-blind boy with a unique perspective on the world. We strive to bring this unique perspective to everything we do.

Since 2003 we have been involved with a range of fantastic international clients: broadcasters to brands and charities. We employ award-winning filmmakers to deliver touching, exciting and engaging content.
