Created by Friends on Both Sides of the Pond

Samantha V. Hutton in the UK and Nicole Russin-McFarland in the USA first met through collaborating on a children's audiobook and continued working together with Samantha acting in Nicole's films. In August 2019, they co-founded Haus of Film with the desire to incorporate their shared love of kitchen products and environmentally friendly clothing. UK based friend and actor Ryan McGregor came on board one week later.

Environmentally Friendly

Haus of Film products are printed using water based, OEKO-TEX certified ink free of environmental hazards. Parcels are shipped in 100% recycled materials.

Shipped from the UK

All products are printed in and shipped from the production facility in England.

Shop for Women in Film

A portion of sales from products with the message "I support women in film" will be used to finance female driven film projects on crowdfunding websites. We will announce each project we have donated to on social media so you can see your purchase is indeed going where it should be.
