Black Bean is an independent film production company based in Cape Town, South Africa.

We produce high-quality commercial and documentary films with cause-related, purpose-filled content at our core. We are a for-profit company with a focus on sustainability. We believe that it is now more crucial than ever before to do all we can to fight for a more sustainable future for all. 

We have found that so often films are made about remarkable organisations, individuals, and places but, at the end of the day, those doing the work to support and empower communities and protect our natural heritage do not benefit from this content. We want to change this. A percentage of our annual profits are invested back into the organisations we support that are on the frontlines of the fight for change.
