One of the leading boutique distributors representing documentaries and TV series, First Hand Films, has closed multiple sales with international broadcasters on a range of key documentary titles.

Boasting a catalogue containing over 300 titles and approximately 600 programming hours, First Hand Films represents over 200 producers worldwide and acts as executive producer for selected projects. It has also worked with key broadcasters and distributors around the world such as Arte, the BBC, CH4, SBS and ZDF.

The roster of clients includes UR of Sweden, Spain's Canal+, AVRO and VPRO of The Netherlands, NCN-Media in Russia, Radio Television Hong Kong and Israel's DBS.

"We are extremely happy to announce this breadth of worldwide sales fuelled by the demand for high-end factual content," said First Hand Films CEO Esther van Messel. "The producers behind some of these documentary programmes go to great lengths to ensure a gripping and raw story is told, and we are proud to represent them, enabling viewers to enter the worlds and lives of others that they would not normally have access to."
