Emily James


Emily studied documentary directing at the National Film and Television School, her student films already winning international awards. After her first broadcast commission; The Luckiest Nut in the World (C4, 2002), the Guardian asserted “Emily James is a genius… and will in time be revered as a television innovator.” Following the experimental series Don’t Worry, (C4, 2004), and more classic documentaries such as What Would Jesus Drive?, (C4, 2005) and The Battle for Broadway Market (C4, 2006) Emily moved into feature feature documentaries. She was Executive Producer of the groundbreaking The Age of Stupid (2009), and her feature directing debut, Just Do It – a tale of modern day outlaws opened in over 45 independent cinemas across the UK in Summer 2011. Emily has a reputation for inventive storytelling, pioneering production models, and socially engaged creative filmmaking.
