about film first

Whether examining music or design, exploring systems or people, Film First’s projects reflect a curiosity and passion to present alternative perspectives and spotlight unheralded subjects. Founded in 2010 by publicist and filmmaker Jessica Edwards, the company initially supported marketing and publicity campaigns for narrative and documentary films while building a catalogue of award winning shorts. In 2011, Edwards shifted the focus of the company to solely create documentary projects that inspire and edify.

Since then, Film First’s accomplishments in both short and long form documentary films have generated awards, critical accolades, commercial success and have fostered collaborations with renowned directors and producers. Our Scenic VR division has created non-fiction virtual reality work with the Wall Street Journal, Google, Artsy, Frieze and others.

Regardless of subject or medium, Film First is committed to examining the humanity that connects us all.
