Little House Productions is an independent production company founded and run by Uzma Hasan; a creative leader and producer who brings unheard stories to global audiences and leads teams to success they had not thought possible. Her latest feature film CREATURE is directed by Academy Award winner Asif Kapadia (AMY) in a ground breaking, genre busting collaboration with Lawrence Olivier Award winning choreographer Akram Khan (DESH).

Current projects on her slate include an original musical with Ritesh Batra (THE LUNCHBOX), a sports biopic with Nikesh Shukla (THE GOOD IMMIGRANT), a contemporary reworking of Macbeth set between London and Karachi with playwright Rabiah Hussain (SPUN) and the screen adaptation of Gautam Malkani’s cult novel LONDONSTANI with Nirpal Bhogal (DI RAY). Previous credits include Nirpal Bhogal’s FIRSTBORN, which premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival ahead of a worldwide sale to Netflix, and THE INFIDEL which spawned a musical and Bollywood remake DHARAM SANKAT MEIN.

In addition to producing films with talent from across the globe, Uzma has cultivated an impressive executive career with organisations that have a vision for transforming culture through the creative industries. She is Chair of the Bush Theatre, a multi award winning new writing theatre whose mission it is to disrupt the canon. She was recently appointed Interim CEO of Ffilm Cymru Wales, the national public funding body for film in Wales, before returning to its board. Previously, she was a trustee of Bird’s Eye View, a non profit that champions women in film, and the first person of colour to sit on the board of Channel 4, the world’s youngest skewing public broadcaster, where she was appointed by then Prime Minister Theresa May.

She sits on selection committees and juries for BAFTA, the British Independent Film Awards and Film London amongst others. Uzma has worked across four continents, for independents and studios, including Focus Features, Doha Film Institute, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Tribeca Film Festival on the development, financing, production and exploitation of feature films.

She has been recognised by HRH Prince’s Trust for a Mosaic Arts & Culture Award; nominated for an Asian Woman of Achievement Award and became a Women of the Future Ambassador; and in 2013 was awarded the British Muslim Award for Services to Creativity.

She graduated from University of Wales, Cardiff with first class honours in English Literature and went on to read Film and Literature at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences where she was a Kennedy Scholar.
