What is the best thing about your job?
I enjoy working with filmmakers and establishing relationships with them throughout the campaign process. It is incredibly rewarding to follow a film's journey from the early stages, be it film festival premieres or production itself, to release and in some cases beyond that through to the awards season. It is a demanding job that takes up a lot of time but being part of a vibrant industry is something to be proud of."

"I get to work with a lot of very talented filmmakers and actors and work at a company that is committed to bringing intelligent films to UK audiences!"

How has your degree helped you in your current role?
"Studying American and Canadian Studies taught me how to multi-task across a range of different subjects. Doing such diverse modules has been particularly helpful in an industry where I am working on films across a variety of different genres at any given time."

"I have always loved film, something that I was really able to expand with my ACS degree, so I enjoy now being paid to do it!"
