Swipe Films is an award winning feature film production, sales and distribution company. It is one of the few vertically integrated independent film companies in the UK. It was originally established in 2002 by Frank Mannion, to produce the cult hit, Grand Theft Parsons, starring Johnny Knoxville and Christina Applegate.

An international sales division was created in 2003 with the aim of bringing quality independent films to the widest possible audiences globally. Swipe enjoyed worldwide success with its first sales title, Osama, winner of a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. Since then its sales division has continued to handle films from auteurs such as Mike Figgis, with his new feature, Love Live Long.

In 2004, Swipe's distribution division was established to bring original British, American and foreign language films to UK and Irish audiences. Swipe has released the highly acclaimed UK film, Bigga Than Ben, starring Ben Barnes, Peter Bogdanovich's The Cat's Meow starring Kirsten Dunst and Eddie Izzard, These Foolish Things starring Lauren Bacall, Anjelica Huston and Terence Stamp and foreign language titles such as Frankie starring Diane Kruger and Strings starring James McAvoy.

Swipe's productions include Saving Santa with Martin Freeman, Plastic with Will Poulter (Paramount Pictures) and Jackboots On Whitehall starring Ewan McGregor and Rosamund Pike (Sony Pictures). Recent films include the critically acclaimed Quintessentially British with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench and Sparkling: The Story of Champagne with Stephen Fry, described as "a film of the finest vintage" by the New York Times. The all-star Quintessentially Irish is premiering globally on St Patrick's Day.
