Mirrorball Films is a production company founded by BAFTA award-winning writer and director Debbie Isitt and producer Nick Jones. Together they have made Confetti (Fox Searchlight/BBC Film), the Nativity! franchise (Entertainment One/BFI/BBC Film) and Christmas on Mistletoe Farm (Netflix).
As one of the most successful British female directors of all time, Debbie creates heartfelt comedy that makes audiences feel good. An acclaimed screenwriter, playwright and director, Debbie has worked with great success across stage, television and film. Music also plays a big part in Debbie’s work. Alongside Nicky Ager, Debbie has composed the original tracks and music for all the Nativity films – which feature songs like Sparkle & Shine, She’s The Brightest Star, Yes We Can and Dude, Where’s My Donkey – as well as the original songs and music in her stage musical adaptation Nativity! The Musical.
Debbie’s distinctive approach of combining heart-warming comedy with original songs has led to the Nativity! films becoming amongst the most popular and highest grossing independent UK franchises of recent years. Nativity! won Film of the Year at the Richard Attenborough Film Awards and was nominated for Best Breakthrough Film at the National Movie Awards. Confetti was nominated for Best Comedy Film at the British Comedy Awards in addition to Best British Film at the Empire Awards.
Nativity!’s success spawned a full blown musical spin-off for the stage, which Debbie adapted and directed. Nativity! The Musical has become an annual smash hit both nationally on tour across the UK and as London’s most popular Christmas musical with month long sell-outs at the iconic 3500-seat Hammersmith Eventim Apollo. The stage musical attracted rave reviews, standing ovations and some great celebrity performers including Sharon Osbourne and Danny Dyer.
Mirrorball Films has worked with some of the best of British and international talent including Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Catherine Tate (The Office US), Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Martin Clunes (Doc Martin), Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey), Ashley Jensen (After Life), Pam Ferris (Call the Midwife), Marc Wootton (La La Land) and Jason Watkins (The Crown).
