Gareth Ellis-Unwin

Now an Academy Award winning producer, Gareth has built on his years of practical experience as an AD and PM and takes the lead on Bedlam’s feature film slate. Winning a BAFTA nomination, Spirit and Dinard awards with his first film Exam, Gareth has followed that with the critically-acclaimed The King’s Speech, picking up the Audience Award at Toronto Film Festival, a Producers Guild of America award, seven BAFTAs, including both Outstanding British Film and Best Film, and four Academy Awards, including Best Film.

Having also overseen the live action animation The Flying Machine in Poland and Zaytoun with Far Films in Israel, Gareth is looking forward to commencing ‘The Lady Who Went Too Far’, which sees Bedlam re-unite with King’s Speech writer David Seidler on a fascinating tale of female heroism in the early 19th century
