Programmer at Screentest: National Student Film Festival / Trainee Script Supervisor

  • Location: Bristol
  • Career stage: Entry

Currently based in Bristol. Having recently come third in a National Screenwriting competition, I've been commissioned for 2 writing projects: a web series and a feature film. I also blog at and have had the pleasure to interview Emilia Fox and Niall Johnson at the Mum's List press junket, and review many British films before they are released.

Most recently I have produced/written short film The Circus which recently won Best Short at The Gongs, and am currently making a documentary about Women in Motorsport.  In 2016 I graduated from University of Greenwich with a first class honours degree. I'm also a BBC Academy graduate where I was a live TV studio director. Now part of the committee as a Programmer for Screentest: National Student Film Festival.
