Share with friends

Getting to know and support new female filmmakers is the key to changing the narrative in how stories are being told.

Alice Seabright is an up-and-coming British writer and director who lives in London.

Seabright has worked as crew on several films before writing and directing her first short film in 2012, Dream Girl.

This year, she wrote and directed another short film, Strange Days, about a girl who keeps thinking about a girl who went missing during her teenage years. Seabright has been working on another film, The Phoenix, that’s due out in 2019.

Her short film, Pregnant Pause, was made through Film London’s London Calling scheme. It premiered at BFI London Film Festival in 2016. The film centers on a girl who takes a pregnancy test only to end up in fight with her boyfriend over whether they are ready to have kids. The short takes a more humorous perspective on a stressful situation, but also has much heart.
