Dulcimer Films was founded by filmmaker Robbie Fraser in 2019. We produce documentaries for cinema, TV and online.

Our first film PICTURES FROM AFGHANISTAN, about the war photographer David Pratt, was completed in 2020 and premiered at the Glasgow Film Festival.

A news report from Kabul made as part of that film aired on BBC World News.

Further episodes of PICTURES FROM drawing on other aspects of David Pratt's experience as an independent conflict reporter and photographer are planned for 2021. Development has been funded by BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland, and the series (including Afghanistan) is represented for international sales by Terranoa. 

We have a rich slate of developing projects with a variety of filmmakers, including some fiction under our new label Revolving Tales.

We are available for consulting / executive producer services.


We have expertise in setting up expedition shoots (mountain and wilderness), working with young and vulnerable people (PVG qualified) and we know how to operate in hostile and High Risk environments (HEFAT qualified).

Robbie Fraser's cinema documentaries include FINAL ASCENT, HAMISH, FAMILY GOLDMINE and THE BRIDGE RISING. His films have played at festivals and won prizes worldwide, including the Glasgow Film Festival, CPH:DOX, Bilbao Mendi Film Festival, Ulju Mountain Film Festival in South Korea, Sheffield DOCFEST, Kendal Mountain Festival, Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival, Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and many more.

We aim to tell stories with relevance and heart.
