Hidden Art Films is a production company run by producer Adam Gregory Smith. With a passion for equality he has his sights on a gap in the market for films that are commercial ‘with a twist’ and is looking especially for strong female elements: working in both short film and features, the company wants well-drawn characters; genre movies; and stories that allow strong directorial voices.
The company has a track record of producing high quality short films starring established talent such as Julia Deakin (SPACED), Tim Key (ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA), Amit Shah (THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY) along with many more. We are working with talented emerging writers and directors such as Ben S. Hyland (QUIET CARRIAGE), Aurora Fearnley (PULSAR), Miranda Howard-Williams (DOCTORS).
The short film projects have all found funding from organisations such as Genera Film Funding, IdeasTap, Talkies Community Cinema, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Our stand out films to date have been comedy QUIET CARRIAGE (10 BAFTA and OSCAR qualifying festivals including Aesthetica, LA Shorts, LSSF, Encounters) and human trafficking Drama SAFE SPACE screening at Underwire and Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival. Whilst other films such as THE INSECURITES OF DILL, THE BACKSEAT, PAPARAZZA have also each screened at a number of BAFTA, OSCAR and Canadian Screen Awards qualifying festivals and our Comedies TALK RADIO and S*!T will be screening at festivals from late 2020 onwards.
The company is working with a balanced gender mix of talented writers and directors and all of the films are all guided by company director Adam Gregory Smith from the initial kernel of an idea right through to the audience experience.
