The 4th annual Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 named Bristol-based indie, Icon Films, as no. 32 in the 2018 league table published on Sunday 25th February. Compiled by Fast Track and published by The Sunday Times, the Export Track 100 ranks Britain’s top 100 small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the latest two years.

Icon Films - creators of Animal Planet’s highest-ever rating show, River Monsters - shot to no.32 following a commendable 92.11% average growth in international sales p/a over the last two years. The company’s international exports reached £9.1m last year following high-end commissions for National Geographic WILD, BBC, ITV and Discovery Channel.

Co-founder & Managing Director, Laura Marshall, says: ‘We are thrilled that our international success has been recognised in this report.  Bristol has a thriving media sector and this national league table confirms the value of what we do to UK plc.

Icon Films was one of just two TV production companies to feature in the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 which could support/validate bids for more regional production bases.
