Arts and culture are in our DNA. Chocolate Films was founded from a desire to create beautiful and impactful content for the Arts & Culture Sector. We’ve been producing videos for more than 20 years for many of the UK’s leading organisations and institutions. This has given us knowledge and experience in reaching out to different target audiences.
We offer expertise but also listen and collaborate. We want to know and understand your story and creative vision. Our creative team of filmmakers and in-house experts will work with you at each step to create films that share your story in the most engaging way.
With amazing visuals, fascinating stories and beautiful spaces for filming, as an Arts & Culture organisation you have everything on hand to create captivating content.

What we do
Trailers & Promos
Promotional films and trailers are a great way to get the word out, whether you want to increase membership, promote a new exhibition or highlight a stage production. It is also the time to be creative! Look at using stop motion or motion control cameras to bring 3D objects to life, or 2.5D animation to enable the audience to journey within two-dimensional paintings.
Talks, Events & Live Streaming
Our experience of event filming, from conferences and speeches to private views and gallery openings, enables us to tailor a film to highlight your event in exciting and engaging ways. You’ll have a powerful tool to promote current and future events. We also have the crew and equipment to live stream your event and meet your requirements no matter the size of the event.
Standing out on various social media platforms can be a challenge, and we are here to help you. Our team will recommend different social media strategies that suit your needs and deliver impactful video content for the chosen platform(s). Large amounts of video are viewed on social media every day, and each platform has different rules and recommendations to help your video get the views you need, but with our helpful tips and tricks we can help you provide great video that will get views.
Our award-winning filmmakers can turn your information into a captivating documentary. From securing archive footage to vox-pops, interviews and testimonials from key figures, we have experience in all aspects of documentary filmmaking to bring your story to life. We will work with you throughout the process to ensure that the end film will inspire debate, bring new knowledge to the forefront and have a lasting impact on your institution.
AV Content for Exhibitions
Audiovisual content can unlock stories or share historical context, adding a new layer of interpretation to your exhibition. For exhibitions, we’ve produced experiential installations, informative animations, high production value intro films and much, much more. We understand that videos are part of a larger exhibition and will work with you to create content that feels integral to your story and vision.
With strong visuals, and messages from key people and supporters, video content can be a powerful way of sharing your story. Our filmmaking team will help you define your audience and your messaging and suggest ways of producing a low-budget and impactful film. We can also support and create a fundraising film that will effectively reach your audience on various social platforms.
At Chocolate Films, we are experts at focusing on and visualising organisations’ stories. We know your brand is more than your collection, performances or exhibitions – it’s what makes your audience want to come back time and time again. We can create a brand film that communicates your unique personality to new audiences and help build lasting loyalty and trust.
Are you staging a concert? Producing a play? Or are you opening your venue to new audiences with a pop-up event? Depending on what kind of performance it is, we will recommend ways of filming and how we can use a range of technology to capture the spirit of the performance from every angle, so that the end film will have the same depth of imagination as your live performance.
With the e-learning industry growing, and learning-related content getting 500 million views on YouTube every day, online learning is the way forward. These films can also be a fantastic tool for advocacy and fundraising for future projects. Our team of experts know how to produce informative videos and how to make training content informative, engaging, and cost-effective.
