Mosaic Films is looking for animation directors of exceptional quality for a short series (5 x 5″) of animations around mental health for key stage 2 (8-11). References of our earlier and similar output include ‘Animated Minds‘, ‘Seeking Refuge‘ and ‘I Can’t Go To School Today‘ (all BAFTA winners).
We are looking for animation directors who would like to oversee the whole series, but are also open to directors who would prefer to take charge of only one or two films. This is a low budget production, but one we feel is very important, and we’re looking for a team player who can work collaboratively on an impactful (and award-winning) series.
Animation will start early January, for a production cycle of 12 – 16 weeks. We will review applications on a rolling basis, and are likely to make a decision before or … Read More »

After fifteen incredible years the DFG is coming to an end. Don’t despair though! We’re merging with the European Documentary Network (EDN).
DFG started in 2001 as a small collective of documentary filmmakers in London who wanted to share ideas, watch documentaries together, and feel a sense of community in the (then) quite isolated world of independent documentary film. Back then there were very few documentaries in the cinema, no training opportunities outside film school, no online community and very little access to the “industry” – both in theUK and elsewhere – for most independent filmmakers.
We changed that. We started regular events – at first above a pub (the Crown and Two Chairman in Soho),then to Golden Square, then to London Film School and finally to The Other Cinema. These events became almost weekly, attended by audiences in their hundreds! And as their … Read More »

Shattered Minds: Our Traumatic Wars
Mosaic Films are lead partner on a public engagement project about service-related mental health called Shattered Minds. At the heart of the project are a number of short animated documentaries narrated by Veterans – aimed at addressing the stereotypes, prejudice and misinformation surrounding War Trauma. Each film will be focussed on a different conflict over the past 100 years including the First World War, The Falklands and Iraq and Afghanistan. The key target audiences for the films are Veterans, their families, general health workers and service men and women – as well as the general public.

Current partners include NHS Veterans’ Mental Health services, service charities and a UK-wide network of museums amongst many others. Mosaic Films has a strong track record … Read More »
