Fat Rat Films

Fat Rat Films is the award-winning documentary filmmaking partnership of Gemma Atkinson and Fred Grace.

Their films have been broadcast on BBC Newsnight, Channel 4, Al-Jazeera, screened worldwide at festivals and garnered national press coverage.

The nature of their films has seen them attacked with pepper spray and threatened with a two-year jail sentence by the British government.

They also direct and produce documentaries for various NGO's including The Elders and Publish What You Pay on subjects of global governance and social justice.

They co-founded Doc Heads, a screening and networking night that brings professional documentary filmmakers together and has partnered with, among others, Sheffield Doc/fest, London Short film festival and the East End Film Festival. Doc Heads recently became a film fund, funding up to 40 % of feature budgets.
