Way back in February I had the pleasure of meeting Harry Wootliff, a writer and director whose debut feature film Only You premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last year was also recently shortlisted for the IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Bursary Award. Harry’s first short film Nits was BAFTA-nominated and premiered in official selection at Director’s Fortnight in Cannes.
We talk about self-belief when you’re first starting out as a writer, visual storytelling, coming up with ideas and directing for TV versus directing for film.
Only You will have a preview screening on the 4th May at the Barbican in London, and will include a screentalk with Harry, so I definitely recommend getting tickets for that and the film will be released later this year by Curzon.
- The book Harry bought when she first started directing
- Jerwood Arts Prize
- The Bureau – the film company that helped develop, finance and produce Only You, there other credits include Lean on Pete, Daphne and 45 Years
- Last year Harry was on the shortlist for the IWC Schaffhausen bursary, the biggest funding grant of its kind in the UK
- Deep Water, the six-part ITV drama starring Anna Friel will be Harry’s next directorial venture
