Coldhouse Collective

Coldhouse is a Peak District based creative production agency that specialises in the production of adventure focused narrative films.


Started by Matt Pycroft 10 years ago, Coldhouse went from a tiny startup to one of the UK's leading adventure film production companies. We are focused on trying to tell impactful stories about people, the environment, adventure and the mountains. More recently we're becoming obsessed with reducing our impact on and trying to do some good in the World. We've been 1% for the planet members for many years and have partnered with Moors for the Future - a peaks based conservation organisation which monitors and restores the upland moors of the Peak District national park. We also launched an Accessibility in Adventure Film project last year - with the vision of getting filmmakers, film festivals and the wider industry to make accessible versions of the amazing adventure content that is put out every year, enabling D/deaf and blind/visually impaired audiences to enjoy them.
We've worked this year with ShAFF and Find It Film to present the Access All Areas accessibility sessions at ShAFF, alongside sitting on a panel event on Saturday about why we should be making content accessible. Come along and join the conversation!
