Cardiff-based indie Kailash Films has hired ex-Plimsoll exec Siobhan Logue to the newly created role of development executive.

BAFTA-winner Logue is tasked with helping to grow the company after it was awarded funding from the BBC Small Indie Fund. She will initially focus on BBC network commissions, whilst also creating original formats for both the UK and international platforms.

Logue will report directly to Gwenllian Hughes, creative director and founder of Kailash Films.

The indie’s first commission for the BBC in 2018, The Incurable Optimist, was about a young woman with a life-limiting condition that could kill her any day. It was nominated for a RTS Cymru Award and also won a BAFTA Cymru award.

In 2021, Kailash Films was chosen to be part of the BBC Small Indie Fund. The company was
also part of the 2021 cohort of the Indielab program and was selected for PACT’s
Future 30 development scheme for the most exciting emerging indies from across the UK.

Prior to joining Kailash, Logue worked at Bristol based Plimsoll Productions, spearheading
their Music & Arts slate. Her recent credits include: Music’s Greatest Decade – the 80s and
Make Up: A Glamorous History series for BBC Two and the Fela Kuti feature documentary for
BBC’s acclaimed Arena strand. Logue also oversaw The Women of 9/11, a premium doc for
ABC News/Disney+.
