About Us

Passion Planet, established in 2011, has swiftly secured a stellar reputation for innovative and inspiring science and natural history documentaries. After a prolific twenty-year career as a leading Producer in his field, multi Emmy-award winning DAVID ALLEN now heads up a large team of leading creatives, producers and experts across Planet’s specialist output.

These include a wide and varied range of tailored approaches, formats and genre – from authored narratives like the acclaimed MY LIFE AS A TURKEY – to ambitious landmark series like EARTH: A NEW WILD, for National Geographic and PBS – and director Sasha Snow’s feature drama-documentary HADWIN’S JUDGEMENT for FilmFour and the Canadian Film Board. Passion Planet has already garnered thirteen international awards, including Wildscreen Golden Panda and two Emmys®.

Passion Pictures’ first feature documentary ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER went on to win an Academy Award® in 1999. Passion has since been at the forefront of feature documentary production – as evidenced by a prolific run of multi-award winning films, a reputation for securing international theatrical releases, and – as of 2019 – an unprecedented fourteen consecutive years premiering films at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
Passion’s most notable titles include: RESTREPO, THE TILLMAN STORY, THE IMPOSTER, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN, WINTER ON FIRE, LISTEN TO ME MARLON, ERIC CLAPTON: LIFE IN 12 BARS and THE FINAL YEAR. In 2019 Passion have had films selected at Sundance, Melbourne, Venice, Frameline, Telluride, Toronto and London International Film Festivals – these films and others see Passion collaborate with some of the most exciting filmmakers, writers, journalists, editors, composers, cinematographers and production partners working in the industry today.
