films that feel real
Founded in 2004 by Simon Taylor, Periphery Films is a boutique production company based in Cape Town, South Africa.
We produce content for a broad range of clients and develop original concepts for distribution on various platforms. Through story and strong character-driven narratives, we explore critical themes such as environmental resource management, public health, economic security and contemporary social issues, to name a few. A combination of natural elements and people are at the center of our work. Our last film was licensed by BBC Knowledge and SABC. Some of our past clients include: The Daily Show with John Stewart, Comedy Central USA, FoxSports, Al Jazeera, The Save Valley Conservancy, SABC, The Buffalo City Municipality and the Western Cape Department of Health.
We also develop international co-productions and facilitate film services on location. We also take pictures for our clients. Please feel welcome to contact us or drop by for a cup of tea.
