Dom Unsworth has been a producer for more than 20 years, making 50-plus short films over that period. She’s passionate about inclusion and accessibility in the screen industries and supports diverse talent, crew and artists while producing commissions for the likes of the BBC and Channel 4. She has also supported hundreds of underrepresented artists and filmmakers to secure work through her Slough-based social enterprise Resource Productions. In 2020, she was presented with an MBE for services to apprenticeships.
Dom started in the industry as a runner while still at school, before making her first short, Stain, in 2005. Among the many short films she has produced since then are Exhale (2021), by BFI Future Film Festival 2022 award winner Adekemi Roluga; Fish (2021), by Underwire nominee Emilie Cheung; Lehenga (2018), by Iris Prize nominee Nathalia Syam; and Tehzeeb (2015), by BAFTA nominee Myriam Raja. She’s also been a participant of BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew (2017-2019).
In 2021, Dom founded Parity Pictures in Bolton, with the aspiration of producing more regional long-form content. She has also just completed her debut feature, a British-South Asian romantic comedy entitled Little English, which will receive its UK premiere at a gala screening at the London Indian Film Festival in June 2022.
