The author of three books, writer of the second series of Killing Eve, co-creator of a revamped musical version of Cinderella and an actor whose work includes Anna Karenina, Vita & Virginia, Any Human Heart, Call the Midwife and The Crown, Emerald Fennell is also one of the UK’s most exciting filmmakers.

In 2019, she wrote and directed her feature debut Promising Young Woman. A blackly comic feminist revenge thriller, it starred Carey Mulligan as a woman determined to make men think twice about their behaviour. It garnered a BAFTA for Best Screenplay (Original) and Outstanding British Film of the Year, and an Oscar™ for Best Original Screenplay.

Saltburn, Emerald Fennell’s highly anticipated second feature sees the filmmaker widen her scope, with a scabrous critique of class and privilege. We welcome her to BFI London Film Festival to discuss these films and her acclaimed career, both in front of and behind the camera.
