Silver Salt Films is a London-based film and TV production company creating bold, distinctive content for a global audience. We champion the very best international talent to produce authored stories from alternative perspectives, with a particular focus on ground-breaking filmmakers with visionary projects.
Selected for the BBC’s Small Indie Fund in 2023, the company has a diverse development slate of internationally-facing television and film projects.
Founded by Helen Jones (BAFTA Breakthrough UK) and Naomi Wright, previous work includes ‘Censor’ (2021, dir. Prano Bailey-Bond), which premiered at Sundance and was nominated for 9 British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs), including ‘Breakthrough Producer’ for Helen Jones, and won the 2021 Méliès d’Or. It subsequently sold to nearly all worldwide territories and was released theatrically and digitally around the globe.
Our co-production ‘The Works and Days (of Tayoko Shiojiri in the Shiotani Basin)’ (2020, dir. C.W. Winter & Anders Edström), won the Golden Bear for ‘Best Film’ in the Encounters competition at the 2020 Berlinale and attracted theatrical distribution across multiple international territories.
Prior to forming Silver Salt Films, Helen’s career was predominantly in international theatrical distribution, with Naomi having produced and directed documentaries for all of the major UK broadcasters.
