Inside Out Films is an independent film production company founded by Geoff Arbourne in 2013. Based in a remote part of Devon, in rural England and operating from the UK and South Africa, it specialises in film production and television production.


Inside Out Films' films have been shown in over a hundred festivals worldwide and broadcast on BBC Storyville[1], Netflix, Canal+ and Independent Lens[2], among others. Their awards include; a News & Documentary Emmy Award in 2018 for Outstanding Politics and Government Documentary,[3] The Van Leer Award for Best Director of a Documentary, The Haggiag Award for Best Editing and TROMSØ International Faith in Film Award.[4]

In 2015, Inside Out Films produced one of the first short documentaries, Beitar Jerusalem, for The Guardian online platform[5] which attracted over a million views within the first 24 hours.[6] The company then went on to produce the acclaimed feature documentary Forever Pure, supported by the Tribeca Institute[7] and Sundance Institute. Forever Pure had its international premiere at Toronto Film Festival in 2016, played over 100 festivals, winning numerous awards, and became highly popular on BBC Storyville, iTunes and Netflix. Releasing the film caused a significant backlash from many of the Beitar fans, putting the director Maya Zinshtein's life at risk.[8]

Inside Out Films works closely with distinguished producers John Battsek and Robyn Slovo, and is an affiliate member of Producers Alliance for Cinema and Television (Pact).[9]
