Banger is equipped with its own in-house studio, edit suites and a fully-stocked vintage bar. We provide expertise in music licensing, archival research and art direction.

Founded in 2004, Banger Films is a global leader in music storytelling. Banger has an award-winning catalogue of feature documentaries, doc series, live concerts, kids programming, and VR experiences that has featured the biggest names in music and screened on all platforms worldwide.

An award-winning production company for over 15 years, Banger Films puts quality and creativity at the fore to dive deeper into the cross-sections of music, culture, and what makes us all human.

With a focus on storytelling through an anthropological lens, we pose intimate and in-depth questions designed with our audiences in mind. Featuring insights from the biggest names in music and culture, we strive to discover the social intersections that unite us, rather than divide us. This line of thinking and commitment to quality can also be seen in Banger’s fast-growing Kids & Family division, all-digital platform BANGERTV, and live concert production.

At the end of the day, we like to work hard AND play hard. At Banger, we also believe production should be FUN - which is why you might find us traversing through muddy festival fields, head-banging to Metallica together at 8a.m., or learning choreographed dance moves to the latest K-Pop hit.
