MZL Productions is a film and theatre production company based in London and founded by Shreya Tanisha during her final MFA year at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.

The company promotes work by artists of colour, with a focus on increasing diverse female representation, and also enhancing and enabling a strong collaborative atmosphere.


We want to tell the stories that haven't been told and see the characters that haven't been seen. Since we enjoy experimentation we are not at this stage claiming or hoping to be hugely commercially viable, but rather, we are seeking to maintain a space in which new ideas can flourish, and where we can make work that is aspirational.

The company is endorsed by The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and is a recipient of the Central Start-Up and Enterprise Award.
