News Image
Channel 4's Indie Growth Fund has taken a minority stake in Five Mile Films, a Bristol-based, factual indie led by Nick Mirsky. 

Five Mile Films is the first Channel 4 Indie Growth Fund investment in Bristol since the broadcaster announced it would be locating a new Creative Hub in the city.

Five Mile Films was set up in September 2018. The team includes Anna Llewellyn, who has directed shows such as A Very British Hotel, Inside Birmingham Childrens’ Hospital and 24 Hours in A&E and former Dragonfly Head of Production Yvonne Bainton.  Five Mile Films also recently announced its first series commission, 'The Dog House', for Channel 4 and as it grows will specialise in producing innovative cross-genre projects often mixing drama with documentary, popular factual multi-part series as well as authored and observational factual output.

Nick Mirsky was previously Head of Documentaries at Channel 4 where he ran the team responsible for key series and brands including 24 Hours in A&E, Educating Yorkshire and First Dates.
