Hawk Films was a British film production company formed by Stanley Kubrick for his 1964 film Dr. Strangelove.[1] He also used it as production company for A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), The Shining (1980) and Full Metal Jacket (1987).[1]

He later formed two subsidiaries that were also named after birds of prey:[2] In addition to Hawk Films, Peregrine Productions was involved in the production of Barry Lyndon and The Shining;[1] while Harrier Films was involved in the production of Full Metal Jacket[1][3] together with his main production company Stanley Kubrick Productions, which he set up for 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and which was also the main production company for Eyes Wide Shut (1999).

The American environmentalist Roger A. Caras served as vice president of Hawk Films from 1965 to 1969, and was heavily involved in the promotion of 2001: A Space Odyssey.[4]
