ABOUT FLORENCE 

Hello! I'm a documentary filmmaker and audio artist based in Cornwall.

I'm an experienced self-shooter and editor of non-fiction film. Following an MA in Ethnographic and Documentary Film from UCL, studying with the Open City Docs School in London, I moved my work to West Cornwall to work with local communities and stories. My films have screened in festivals and venues around the UK, and I'm committed to using film as a tool for sharing underrepresented stories and changing the way we see the world. 

 

I came to film via a love of music and ethnomusicology, with a  BA in Music from Durham University. In 2019 I completed a short course at the National Film & Television School in Narrative Sound Design which now forms an important part of my approach. I was selected as a New Creative for the BBC Arts scheme 2019, which led to my first broadcast project which is now available on BBC Sounds.

 

In 2020 I was selected as one of Cornwall's '30 Under 30' practitioners to watch by Cornwall's Chamber of Commerce for my work in film and project leadership, and have talked about my work at the Tate St Ives. In 2021-22 I shared my first piece of work for exhibition, hosted by the National Trust and Redwing Gallery, and am now working on my first feature length project.
