The Film Producers Guild was a collective of documentary film companies in England.[1] It was formed in August 1944[2] and had offices and screening facilities on Upper St. Martin's Lane, in London. They owned Merton Park Studios in south London.[1]

Guild producers, directors, writers, cameramen and film editors were part of the British post-war Documentary Film Movement. Peter Morley got his first job in the industry working as a projectionist at the Guild's screening room and met people like Humphrey Jennings, John Grierson, Jill Craigie and Paul Rotha.[1]
