Rosebud Films was founded by filmmaker Abdullah Khan. The company is committed to producing original content, focused on urgent contemporary topics. So far, our films have explored subjects such as celebrity worship, suicide, mental health, and parental neglect. Our goal is to tell important stories that are bold, provocative, and highly cinematic.
Abdul began his career in the film industry working as a runner on productions for the BBC, Channel 4, and Fox. At age 17, he took part in the BFI Film Academy held at Pinewood Studios and later at the National Film &Television School, where he produced the short film “The Narrator,” which premiered at the BFI Southbank in front of an industry audience, including representatives of Lucasfilm.
At age 18, he worked on the sets of some of the biggest films of the last few years, including “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “Fast & Furious: Hobbs and Shaw,” and “1917.” Shortly after, he was offered a position as an assistant at Academy Award Winning Director Sam Mendes’ Neal Street Productions - one of the UK’s most respected production companies, globally engaged in film, television, and theatre.
In 2021, he founded Rosebud Films and went on to make his short debut with “Find the Light,” starring George MacKay (1917) which premiered at the Manchester Film Festival. Currently, he is in post-production with his second short, “Path to Ecstasy,” starring Olivier Winner Michael Jibson (Hamilton), and Louis Ashbourne Serkis (The Kid Who Would Be King).
In 2022, he was selected as a Forbes 30 Under 30 Honoree in the Entertainment Category. Under the Rosebud Films’ banner, he is also developing multiple feature film projects, including a psychological period piece focusing on the occult.
