Our Story

Inside Out Films is an international production company based in Devon and operates out of the U.K. and South Africa.

Taking its name from the phrase ‘what is normally inside now turns outwards,’ IOF is at the forefront of producing hard-hitting, emotionally intelligent, and deeply personal films of the highest quality.

We are a small but determined production company that is becoming more effective at transforming ideas into ambitious productions. We currently have two staff members. Geoff Arbourne Producer and Richard Baskett Head of Finance both started at the company in 2013.

In 2017, we opened a small satellite office in Cape Town, South Africa. It aims to build a strong network of filmmakers and film professionals across the continent, and also facilitates attendance and participation at many of the regions film festivals and markets – Zanzibar (ZIFF), Durban (DIFF), Joburg (JFF), FESPACO, Zimbabwe, the Rwanda Film Festival, and the Maisha Film Festival in Uganda.

We are a company with strong roots in documentary filmmaking – exploring a distinctive visual essence of the truth – and we are determined to continue that along with beginning to develop new fictional projects

I am intensely excited by the pilot for this upcoming project. As an artist myself whose music and films often look at topics of migration and minority identity it is refreshing to see a Black British artist such as Femi taking the topic of colonialism.
