Emily is one of the UK's emerging directing talents making a mark on the international stage (BFC), with eight short films under her belt. Emily has a strong visual sensibility and is attracted to dark stories and twisted, conflicted characters.

Emily recently made black comedy short IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME for Sky with Merman producers Clelia Mountford and Sharon Horgan (CATASTROPHE). Her controversial short COLD WARRIOR, UK Premiered at the Edinburgh IFF, won the Best Short Film Youth Jury Award at Flickers: Rhode Island IFF and the Meeting Point Special Mention Award at the Seminci Valladolid FF. A NEUTRAL CORNER won Best Short Film at the Kodak Showcase, and was the Opening Night film at the Dinard British FF in front of Ken Loach's IT'S A FREE WORLD. SNOW was official selection at the New York FF in front of Hong Sang Soo's TALE OF CINEMA.

Emily is in pre-production on her first feature, TRUNK, a thriller with producers Dan Shepherd and Jules Elvins and financiers Great Point Media. Emily has various other projects in the pipeline, including thriller COME AND GET ME, horror SCREAM ROOM, and her own political thriller COLD WARRIOR.

Emily is an alumna of various talent programmes, including the EIFF Talent Lab, the Berlinale Talent Campus and Guiding Lights.

Emily studied film and media at the Paul Valery University in Montpellier, France. Her first job as a runner led her down a career path in post-production. She was a Digital Online Editor for Company 3 London until 2016, with credits on films such as LEGEND, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION and SPECTRE.

Emily's love of film and storytelling all started with a hand cranked Fisher Price Movie Projector. Watching the Jungle Book, Mickey Mouse and Bambi projected on the wall at the back of her parents' shoe shop sparked her imagination.
