JAMIE has its Festival Premiere at Palm Springs 2020

Jamie premieres PSFF2020

Esmé Creed-Miles's Jamie premieres at Palm Springs Shortfest.

We are proud to present JAMIE and for it to begin its festival life at Palm Springs Short Film Festival in June. We are thankful in these strange covid times to be there amongst such a cool set of filmmakers and great festival team. We look forward to being able to announce more festivals to come! Jamie is a short film written, directed and starring Esmé Creed-Miles, produced by me and Juliette Larthe at Prettybird.


And what else?

Work continues on our slate of projects, notably the development of Rachel Maclean’s Baby Star with the support of Screen Scotland directly, as Film City Futures who are partnering with Glasgow Film to deliver Short Circuit have now taken over from SFTN moving forward. Still beavering away on Brynach Day’s The Tribe of the Half Moon too and Matthieu de Braconnier has joined us as EP on Gaëlle Denis’s The Girl from the Estuary, in co-production with La Voie Lactée and with support from Creative England, BFI and Region Bretagne. More news on these projects soon.


We’ve been collaborating with Prettybird on some exciting longform projects including CUNNING by Tom Beard moving into its second round of development with Blonde to Black and the BFI, JAMIE Esmé Creed-Miles’s first film as a writer-director with BBC Films and a multi-disciplinary art and feature project with Gareth Pugh and Carson McColl celebrating the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, building towards the 50th anniversary of PRIDE and galvanising the movement in the wake of bloody BREXIT and the surge of the far right. With the support of MAC’s VIVA GLAM arm and DAZED where you can see our teaser with some of the fabulous footage Gareth and Carson have captured so far in Belfast, Glasgow, Sunderland and London, including a candid interview with Nicola Sturgeon.

BIFA Crocodile and Baby

BIFA has had a great idea in this period of Coronavirus lockdown - they have made all the BIFA nominated and winner shorts over the past 10 years available to view for FREE. How lovely to see BABY and CROCODILE up there and among such an exciting batch of films - great to be able to watch them all.

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
