Independent film producer Emily Everdee has experienced the support of BAFTA already in her lifetime. In 2016, she was selected for a Prince William Scholarship in Film, Games and Television, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros., providing her with the financial and industry support to finish an MA in Producing from the National Film and Television School.
Even before graduating, Emily had notched up numerous short film credits as producer or executive producer. But since completing her course, her short films have been garnering attention, including the 2020 British Independent Film Awards-nominated Mandem, the BAFTA-longlisted The Call Centre and award-winning animation Listen to Me Sing (all 2020).
Emily is a former Film & TV Charity John Brabourne Awards recipient and Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent Lab alumna. In 2022, she was selected for BFI Flare mentorship and the Birds Eye View Filmonomics training programme.
Through her own company, Everdee Media, Emily is developing features and television projects with a focus on telling compelling, audience-facing stories from distinct, authentic voices. Her slate spans female-led horrors, dark comedies, Parisian period dramas, LGBTQIA+ anthology rom-coms and a US-set supernatural horror with writer-director Cassiah Joski-Jethi, which was presented at Film London’s most recent Production Finance Market.
