About Us

Our Mission

We firmly believe that it is in everyone’s interest to live in an environment where there is equal access to everything, where barriers – physical and social – don’t exist. As a company run by a disabled entrepreneur, employing disabled staff and those with strong diversity credentials, we want access to be part of the norm, part of everyday life.

Since the Disability Discrimination and Equality Acts many companies have thought seriously about their disability access provision, but they are not always communicating this clearly with disabled users. Gilbey Films provides the missing link between progressive, accessible businesses and their potential disabled customers. Whether it’s by making access videos or training films, advising on portrayal or script consultancy, we are committed to making society more inclusive…

About Gilbey Films

Our Ethos

Credibility, Integrity, Quality.

  •  We are the most credible company making disabled access guides and training films. What sets us apart is that we are user-led. When we produce films, we do so through an experienced, multi-faceted disability lens. Between us, we have connections across a vast array of disabled and diverse networks, and we regularly discuss ideas and approaches with peers. If you have an interest in disability issues and would like to connect, we would love to hear from you.
  • Integrity lies at the heart of everything we do. Our business is to convey honest, accurate information. We do not ignore inconvenient barriers or obstacles, instead we show them clearly and openly.  Everyone has their own particular set of needs – we firmly believe in giving disabled people all the necessary information so they can make up their own minds about whether a venue or attraction works for them.
  • At Gilbey Films we take pride in delivering the most professional, highest quality product. Every person on the team is exceptionally skilled and experienced, with many years’ experience working for the BBC and other broadcasters.  We are also committed to developing the next generation of disabled talent, both on and off screen. If you are interested in finding out more, then please get in touch.

The Team

Andy Gilbert, Company Founder and Executive Producer

As someone living with a disability I know from first-hand experience how important it is to find places – hotels, venues, attractions – with the right access to suit specific needs. I feel there’s a genuine gap in the market – there are no specialist user-led production companies making films aimed at the disabled consumer. And that is how and why Gilbey Films began.

Now, eight years on, we are a thriving, award-winning company, with an impressive client list. Our clients praise the quality and professionalism of our films and remark on how enjoyable the process has been. I feel this is a reflection on the skills of my experienced, creative and exceptionally friendly team!
