Films by first-time filmmakers & fresh independent voices, made in Europe

Our Mission

Northern Stories brings together the films made in the UK, Europe and Africa, under several different banners, in the last decade.

These steps on our adventure in filmmaking have led us to realise that our best and most enjoyable contribution is to amplify the voices of original, often new, storytellers.

Being part of the delivery of opportunity for a new generation, and working to allow the product of their imaginations and talent to be realised in film has been thrilling.

This remains our mission. To give chances to women, working class and minority points of view across all the trades and skills that the film industry comprises. Our mission and our honour.

Who we are

With almost thirty years of experience across many different aspects of the industry, our Founder Maggie Monteith has one central aim in mind, and that is to tirelessly work to find and build audiences for indie film entertainment.

By building an innovative framework of support around all the projects, we are slowly beginning to see results.

Our sister company in the UK, , was established to try to show that with the right people, doing their level best, every film has the chance to find its true audience potential, from the festival circuit, to in cinema and beyond into the jungle superstore that is home entertainment these days.

With cinemas dark and silent just now, and the world in social and economic turmoil, a space has emerged for us to consider how best to move forward in the projects we choose to make, how we make them, who we work with and the champions we win who cheer us on in our journey.

We’re making good use of that space we hope, and look forward to bringing you the projects that got in under the wire very soon.
