About presenter Simon Hunter

Simon Hunter is a filmmaker who can teach. He has directed three features that have had theatrical release, including Edie, which premiered at Raindance 2017 and secured distribution in the UK, US and Germany. He has directed over 150 commercials. There simply aren’t any other film directing courses presented by a filmmaker with this level of current experience.

Simon’s latest film, EDIE starring the iconic British actress Sheila Hancock has enjoyed a five+ week theatrical release. Rarely does one get a chance to learn from someone who has a movie that has received such acclaim. In addition to the creative side of directing, few are better to explain the commercial side as well.

Simon also directed the 2019 and 20120 Raindance Film Festival Advert
