About KEO films

We are KEO films - Ingenious, pioneering and authentic. 

Established in 1996 and celebrating its 20th anniversary KEO Films is a multi-award winning integrated broadcast, commercial and digital production company regularly voted into the top few places in peer polls for TV Indies.  KEO develops and produces content that has something to say and has a reason to exist beyond achieving ratings.  KEO's strong ethical brand reputation and innovative approach have resulted in its programming becoming ratings powerhouses and award winners.  A fact well illustrated by Exodus: Our Journey to Europe for BBC 2, Hugh's War on Waste for BBC 1, Eden, The Romanians are Coming and Skint for Channel 4 and the hugely successful River Cottage brand.
