Film Production

Production of feature films or short films, our team have been working in the industry for over 15 years. True stories or pure fiction, our passion is presented in film.

Documentary Films

Real life often surpasses fiction, putting these subjects and stories into images is a challenge we face with confidence. Passionate about documentaries, we put our know-how at the service of the story.

TV Series

An exciting story can be presented in several episodes. Bringing the world to life or capturing people’s attention episode after episode takes planning and structure. That’s what we do on a regular basis and it’s still as exciting now as it was in the beginning.

Welcome to Forge Films

We are visionary in the production of Films, Documentaries, TV Series and Digital Content.
