Harry (1989) is a London-based self-taught, autistic award-winning filmmaker. He grew up in a working-class area in Bristol and left school at sixteen then worked as a labourer for several years. After getting in trouble with the police and realising there was more to life, Harry moved to Ibiza to work for the summer and discovered a passion for photography. Upon his return to the UK, he saved and moved to London to study Fine Art Photography where he realised a love of cinema and has been obsessed ever since.
He made his first short film in 2016 and has since gone on to make two more narrative shorts which have screened at Oscar, BAFTA and BIFA-qualifying film festivals worldwide. His latest film The Out premiered at the Oscar-qualifying Indy Shorts Film Festival in 2022 named one of the Best Short Film Festivals in the World by Moviemaker Magazine. The Out won Best Director at the BIFA-qualifying Little Wing Film Festival, was nominated for Best Short Film at the British Short Film Awards and screened at London Short Film Festival as well as multiple other BAFTA and BIFA-qualifying festivals.
Dedicated to the form, Harry funds filmmaking with various side hustles often working multiple jobs to raise money. He’s currently working towards his debut feature and continues to develop short and long-form projects with a focus on bold, poetic, personal yet political, stories and portraying outcasts and characters from underrepresented and marginalised communities.
