Be Aware Productions Limited is a production company founded in January 2015 by actress and director Pınar Öğün to create innovative performing and audio-visual art works.
Be Aware Productions aims to produce works of international dimension and appeal, that explore, challenge and expand the limits of the discipline in which they are produced.
The first production of Be Aware Productions is a short film entitled “Exhibit” which has won several awards and has been selected to various festivals around the world. Be Aware Productions aims to produce a performance each year. The first performance is “Enough is Enough”, which toured across Wales in winter 2017, supported by Arts Council Wales.

Together we create, produce and bring art to life.
