About Jane Gull

Jane Gull's debut feature film MY FERAL HEART, 2017, became the UK’s most successful ‘cinema-on-demand’ film of all time, in partnership with OurScreen. It earned Jane a BIFA long-list nomination for debut director and won best director and film at the Lift-Off Awards. The world premiere was at Cinequest in the US and picked up the audience choice award for best drama and lead Steven Brandon won several awards worldwide. It was included in Mark Kermode’s 2016 Film Review, describing it as “richly rewarding” and “beautifully directed”. Having started her career as an actress, the UK Film Council helped Jane to write and direct her first film TOGETHER ALONE. She has written, directed and produced several acclaimed shorts including the multi award winning SUNNY BOY, acquired by CH4 and ARTE TV. Jane is a graduate of the EIFF Talent Lab, Berlinale Talent Campus and the BFI London Film Festival’s Think-Shoot-Distribute. Jane also works in theatre and recently directed Kevin McNally in EXPLODING MAGGIE at the Tabards Theatre in London. She has several feature films in development.
