Java Films

    • set 6 items

    Founded in 2005, Java Films rapidly established itself as one of Europe’s leading independent distributors, providing pre-sales and distribution to documentaries. We pride ourselves on our strong, personal relationships with our producers and clients and place this at the centre of everything we do.

    At Java, we’re passionate about stories that explain the big issues of tomorrow. We only work with non-fiction and specialise in current affairs investigations, human rights, history and environmental films. Our boutique feature department takes on 6 – 8 feature documentaries a year, while our TV department works with approximately 60 – 80 titles per year.

    Our priority is to ensure that our films are widely seen and accessible to everyone. To that end, Java is divided into three departments, which work closely together. Our festival department focuses on securing suitable premieres and a long, non-theatrical run for our films. This typically runs for 12 – 36 months and is made up of both festival, non-theatrical and company screenings. Our digital department concentrates on placing films on all types of VOD platforms, as well as managing social media marketing and working with designers and outreach teams to create suitable artwork and visual assets. Meanwhile, our sales department works on securing TV broadcasts, educational deals and inflight sales, through output deals and detailed market knowledge.

    In 2021, our documentaries screened at 150 festivals around the world, winning 32 awards & 5 special mentions.
