We bring the power of documentary to your campaign. Opening unique windows into other people's lives and environments, documentary film is deeply human, observational, educational, creative – and convincing!
Got a story to tell?
While our own film projects get independently financed and produced, we are also available for hire and will help you get your message across: from providing camera crews to managing complete productions and marketing them.
Founder of FILM & CAMPAIGN, Ben Kempas has been involved in documentary production for 20 years – mostly as cinematographer, director, editor or producer for other companies. Much of the resulting work has been broadcast in Germany where his former company expressive.tv was based, as well as internationally.
Film the change
All along, Ben keeps making his own documentary films with various production companies and broadcasters (see each film page for details).
They have one strong theme running through them: they're all about people trying to achieve change: tearing down tall dams or cruel borders; restoring indigenous culture or a whole country; or ridding the world of nuclear weapons.
His most successful film to date, UPSTREAM BATTLE, had its North American premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival and won a number of environmental and human rights awards, screening at more than 30 festivals worldwide.
And then you win
As a first film produced by FILM & CAMPAIGN, Ben is currently working on a new project called AND THEN YOU WIN, following four women who've dedicated their lives to the grassroots campaign for Scottish independence.
And we're co-producing FIELDS OF HOPE, about the plight of the Chagossian people to return to their home.
