Jade Jackman is an emerging filmmaker and journalist who is making a name for herself due to her blurring the boundary between fact and fiction in her work. Combining journalistic integrity with a boundary-pushing aesthetic, she has become sought after by brands and publications alike.
Her unique style has seen her recognized by the British Film Institute’s Future Film Festival, as best young director, for her documentary about immigration entitled ‘Calling Home’, as well as being celebrated by Amnesty on International Women’s Day as a female human rights defender. She has worked as a staff reporter for VICE as well as freelancing for clients such as the Guardian, the Huffington Post, Victoria & Albert, and NOWNESS.
Additionally, she is also a sought after creative voice speaking on panels at the ICA, Sundance, Photo London, Boiler Room and has acted as a juror on various film festivals such as Sheffield DocFest. Her new project is an investigation into why women don’t report sexual assault and is heavily influenced by the horror genre.
