FEE FIE FOE is an award-winning non-fiction studio.

Founded by Matt Houghton, Peter Middleton and James Spinney, over the past decade, we've produced a wide range of documentary projects from shorts to features to VR. We each develop our own projects and we also collaborate together.


In 2014 we adapted the audio diaries of theologian John Hull into a series of critically-acclaimed short films, including the Emmy award-winning, NOTES ON BLINDNESS. In 2015, our short film DEAR ARAUCARIA, made in partnership with the Guardian, won the Audience Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest.

Our debut feature, also entitled NOTES ON BLINDNESS (2016), was nominated for three BAFTAs, including Documentary and Outstanding British Film, and six British Independent Film Awards, winning Best Documentary. In 2018, we released LANDLINE, a short documentary about the only helping in the UK for gay farmers, which won the Best Short Documentary Grierson award. That same year, we released two more short films, HANDS UP, CHIN DOWN which premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest, and FOUR WEDDINGS, our second film made with the Guardian.

We're currently in post-production on our Film4 and BFI-backed feature THE REAL CHARLIE CHAPLIN. Made in partnership with Passion Pictures, Ventureland and Archers Mark, the film is a kaleidoscopic exploration of Hollywood’s most iconic figure. The film is being released by Showtime in the U.S. and Altitude worldwide.

This year, we’ve been working on two more short films. The first, DOUBT, made in partnership with Field Of Vision, is a feverish, archival trip through 75 years of science denialism, from tobacco to climate change to coronavirus. The second, THIS IS ENDOMETRIOSIS is an intimate, self-documented portrait of a photographer living with endometriosis and her battle to stay in the present.

We love meeting new people and we love hearing about new ideas. We're also all involved in mentoring up-and-coming filmmakers and artists. Drop us a line.
