Wildcat Films began with reporting on the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and then undercover with dissident groups in the USSR. We went on to pioneer the role of independents in supplying frontline news to networks around the world.
Our ground breaking reports from conflicts in Nicaragua, South Sudan, Western Sahara and Kashmir led to the establishment of the Channel 4 Film Fund which is still in place today.
