Hello! I’m Nicole Davis. Welcome to my little bit of the internet.
I’m currently a Talent Executive for BFI NETWORK South East where I commission and exec produce short films, and Creative Producer – Audio at Brock Media where I’m developing and producing various audio projects (watch this space).
I’m also a freelance writer and panel moderator, having hosted industry sessions and Q&As for BAFTA, Sundance London, BFI Future Film Festival, Encounters Film Festival and more. Previously I have worked at the BFI, Film4, and next generation content studio and broadcaster Little Dot Studios, where I produced the podcasts Anime To Z and The Doc Exchange.
I host and produce Best Girl Grip, interviewing women behind-the-scenes of the British film industry about how they got their start, what it is they actually do and what their ambitions are. Best Girl Grip launched in January 2019, and has a growing and engaged listenership.
The podcast has had live editions at the Underwire Film Festival, Glasgow Film Festival, Watersprite and the BFI’s Woman With a Movie Camera Summit.
In September 2019 I was sponsored by the Toronto International Film Festival through their ‘Share Her Journey’ initiative to record six episodes at the festival.
I have a film industry newsletter called ‘Get a Grip’ that you can subscribe to here. Expect a round-up of news, ongoings, insights, jobs, advice & inspiration in relation to the screen sector, along with a film recommendation and some occasional musings on my own relationship to work, creativity, productivity and other things I am thinking about.
I have written for publications such as The Guardian, Sight & Sound, Little White Lies, Girls On Tops x READ ME, Another Gaze, i-D and NotebookMUBI, mostly about women in film, but sometimes also about men. You can see what I’ve written here.
I am available for podcast producing, freelance commissions, panel moderation & filmmaker Q&As. Get in touch! I also tweet @stonecoledfox.
