Smith&Nasht founded in 2011 as a creative partnership between Australian entrepreneur and philanthropist Dick Smith and documentary filmmaker Simon Nasht. We tell stories about important ideas for audiences curious about how the world works and where it is heading.

The topics we explore are broad, ranging from science and history to politics and global affairs – yet all our films share a common DNA: a call to pay attention! 

Our presenters include former Prime Ministers, renowned scientists and award-winning journalists. Our stories have travelled the world and won prizes. We are always looking for ways to innovate and surprise.

We’ve formed successful partnerships with broadcasters such as ABC, SBS, BBC, Al Jazeera, DR, VPRO, ARTE and worked with producers in Europe and the US with many more exciting collaborations in the pipeline.
