Isobel Head Shot

Off the Fence is an Academy award winning factual studio. OTF is involved in every aspect and facet of non-fiction programming. It produces, acquires, localises, and distributes programming via its network of creative and commercial offices in Amsterdam, London, Bristol and Toronto.

OTF Originals has produced more than 700 hours of programming over the last three decades for the world’s A-list broadcasters, whilst OTF studios offers a suite of bespoke services to rights-owners, to help broker co-financing/co-production partnerships and handle finished programme sales. It also maximises project revenue and reach by crafting business models tailored to its clients’ specific needs.

Most importantly, OTF believes in quality. This is reflected not only in the non-fiction programming it creates, represents and helps bring to life, but also in its long-term relationships with the world’s top broadcasters and producers.

Would like to meet

Factual producers of any size who have good relationships with UK broadcasters and are looking to explore distribution opportunities for finished program or looking for a co-production partner to help raise financing for a project at an earlier stage. The producers should have projects that either have strong storytelling, international appeal or unique access across all genres in the factual space.
