About PFP

LOGO NEW 2014 (colin)2004 - how we began

Working in Bangladesh,  founder Elspeth Waldie was asked to produce a script for a 35mm feature film Bihongo. A huge success, the film attracted large crowds & created lively debate about the superstition surrounding disability.  Elspeth saw the powerful potential that film offered to marginalised and disadvantaged communities. This discovery remains the driving force of Purple Field Productions. We continue making films that aim to raise awareness of issues and offer information that enable communities to make their own decisions.



Since 2004

We have produced films with partners in

  • Bangladesh
  • Cambodia
  • Ghana
  • Kenya
  • Malawi
  • Rwanda
  • Sierra Leone
  • Senegal
  • Uganda

Our films have proven to be highly successful in communicating information and encouraging communities to engage in local debate and decision making.

And that is what we are all about. Helping people to help themselves.

Take a look at our past films from countries including Bangladesh, Malawi, Gambia, Cambodia and Uganda.


We began with wheelchair users rights in Bangladesh.

Since then we have helped communities with farming

deforestation and climate change

and we are immensely proud to be helping communities deal with the stigma surrounding disability.

Our most recent film in Kenya is the result of many years of painstaking research, working with partners and creating a drama to truly make a difference.
