Braidmade Films was set up by Monika Braid in 2006 to develop and produce independent films. Based in London and Cracow we are keen to work with international talent to produce films of high quality: fiction, documentaries, and experimental; films that relate to a universal human experience and appeal to viewers from various cultural backgrounds.

Braidmade Films acts as advisory body to Polish and British filmmakers wishing to form co-productions; matchmaking talent and projects. Having built its own growing database of talent, Braidmade Films’ aim is also to facilitate Polish productions in the UK and British projects in Poland and by doing so to stimulate both countries cooperation and exchange.
Due to the current volume of projects we cannot accept any new scripts from filmmakers.
