Grace Harper is a British filmmaker using creative non-fiction to explore human conflict, how socio-political contexts embed themselves into daily experience and the structures — both internal and external — that we create and fight against in order to move within the world. She came to film from a background in literature and creative writing, her work crosses multiple modes of making — moving between documentary, personal, journalistic, archival, essay-based and live performance — and is political and psychoanalytic but always laced with warmth and humour. Her work has screened at international film festivals and gallery spaces including BAFTA, The BFI, Sheffield Doc/Fest, The Barbican, St Louis Film Festival, The Institute of Contemporary Arts and The British Library and has been performed live, published online and broadcast on television. She co-founded the female-led production company Glow Films, where she produced and directed short films for BBC1, Channel 4, CNN, The Guardian and The New York Times Op Docs. Grace earned a first class BA in English Literature from Queen Mary’s, where she was awarded the Westfield Trust prize for academic excellence, and an MA in Directing Documentary from the National Film and Television School UK where she was selected as a BAFTA Star of Tomorrow. Aside from filmmaking, Grace teaches and is a visiting lecturer at The Met Film School, and The National Film and Television School. She has received generous support from the British Council, Chicago Media Project, Points North Institute, UnionDocs, BBC Films, Film London and Channel 4 Film Fund amongst others.
