FilmFair was a British production company and animation studio that produced stop motion children's television series and animated cartoons from the late 1960s until the mid-1990s. The company's stop-motion repertoire included puppets, clay animation, and cutout animation.
Graham Clutterbuck started FilmFair in the late 1960s, working first in Paris and later in London.
In the United Kingdom, FilmFair's productions first aired on BBC1, and later on ITV. Eventually they reached people in several nations through other television networks abroad. Among FilmFair's many series were Paddington, The Wombles, The Herbs, The Adventures of Portland Bill and The Dreamstone.
Central Independent Television (CIT) bought a controlling share of FilmFair during the early 1980s. In 1991, CIT resold FilmFair to Storm Group (aka the Caspian Group). In prior years, the Storm Group had licensed some FilmFair productions for video distribution. In 1996, the Caspian Group sold the FilmFair back catalogue and production amenities to the Canadian company CINAR Films (now the Cookie Jar Group). CINAR'S purchase included all associated distribution, publication, licensing, and merchandising rights. In 2012, DHX Media acquired the rights to the FilmFair properties.
