Liden Films was founded on February 22, 2012 and, shortly after, joined joint-holding company Ultra Super Pictures, alongside studios Sanzigen, Trigger, and Ordet.[2] The company is currently represented by Tetsurou Satomi.[1]

The company has since expanded, currently consisting of five separate branches and the Suginami branch: Liden Films Kyoto Studio (ライデンフィルム京都スタジオ, Raiden Firumu Kyōto Sutajio), founded in 2015; Liden Films Osaka Studio (ライデンフィルム大阪スタジオ, Raiden Firumu Ōsaka Sutajio), founded in 2013; two Tokyo Studios, Liden Films Tokyo 1st Studio (ライデンフィルム東京第一スタジオ, Raiden Firumu Tōkyō Dai Ichi Sutajio) and Liden Films Tokyo 2nd Studio (ライデンフィルム東京第二スタジオ, Raiden Firumu Tōkyō Dai Ni Sutajio);[3] and Liden Films Fukuya Studio (ライデンフィルム深谷スタジオ, Raiden Firumu Fukuya Sutajio), founded in 2018.
