“Fiona Lloyd-Davies is one of the most gifted film makers I’ve ever worked with. For thirty years her work has been marked by powerful storytelling, honesty, compassion and the quiet, careful gathering sometimes painful but often inspiring human testimony. I have the highest regard for her integrity as a journalist and her outstanding decency as a human being - qualities that reveal themselves in her films.”
Allan Little, Journalist and Broadcaster, Author of The Death of Yugoslavia
In 2006, Fiona set up Studio 9 Films to continue making the Baghdad Blogger films which she had been making with Guardian Films and BBC Newsnight. The series of filmed reports won an RTS award for Innovation. Fiona also wanted to continue her work in Bosnia for other broadcasters, like Al Jazeera.
Today, Studio 9 Films collaborates with journalists and filmmakers throughout the world, from Myanmar to eastern Congo, to bring stories about global injustice and serious human rights abuses to audiences everywhere. It gives a voice to those who often go unheard, but who show us the power of resilience and the human spirit at its best, having endured the worst.
Studio 9 Films Founder
Studio 9 Films was founded by the award-winning filmmaker and photojournalist, Fiona Lloyd-Davies. She is one of the UK’s most experienced foreign documentary and current affairs journalists, and has been making films about human rights issues in areas of conflict since the early 90s. Fiona’s work has covered stories in Bosnia, Iraq, Pakistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Fiona found her way into the genre through an ad hoc trip to Bosnia in the first few months
of the war in 1992. There she landed her first job on Clive Gordon's BAFTA award winning
feature documentary: The Unforgiving. It’s where her passion for exposing human rights issues and bringing stories from areas of conflict to a wider audience began.
Fiona’s film about honour killing in Pakistan, Licence to Kill, made for the BBC in 2000 helped bring about a change in the law in the country and was awarded a Royal Television Society award for Best International Journalism.
