Born in Australia and based in London, Jen Fearnley is an award-winning filmmaker who brings her honed storytelling skills to a wide spectrum of productions.
With an MA from Goldsmiths and a background in fine art and community organising, she has made documentaries around the world. Her films have followed; young street hawkers in Nigeria, migrant domestic workers in Ethiopia, female athletes in Cairo and a 100 year old woman facing end of life choices in London.
From fashion to documentary, whether shooting or directing, Jen is committed to combining strong stories with beautiful creative vision and a sense of integrity. As a freelance director she has made films for clients such as the Science Museum, Barbican, Nike, John Lewis, Royal Ascot and Sony.
Passionate about science, technology, and the potential for film to explore different realities and possible futures, she is currently developing several projects that explore the impact of automation on our sense of self and the everyday heroes of space.
She is a co-founder of Sheffield Fringe curatorial platform and more recently Tisk Media.
