Niamh Farrelly.

Niamh Farrelly is a neurodiverse (dyslexia & dyspraxia) writer/director whose work has been screened, nominated for and won awards at worldwide festivals such as Encounters, Ramsgate Film & TV Festival, New Rennaissance Film Festival, Out Web fest & more.  After graduating from Bournemouth Film School in 2016, Niamh was awarded Random Acts funding to make a short that was featured on Channel 4’s website. In 2019 Niamh was awarded a place on the celebrated Cinema Directing course at FAMU International, one of the top ten film schools in the world. For financial reasons, she could not accept her place, but was instead headhunted by the NFTS and asked to apply to the Directing and Producing for Television Entertainment MA, which she has now graduated from.
 
She has a recognisable cinematic style, her work discusses controversial topics through the lens of comedy and the absurd, and occasionally branches into darker and more experimental tones and visuals. Niamh’s work explores gender and sexual politics, queer identity, the female experience, and other underrepresented voices – as someone with a chronic illness (endometriosis) she is driven to tell stories that aren’t being told, but that should be – often using comedy as a vehicle to do so. Niamh has been invited to pitch work to Bofola, DLT entertainment, and esteemed director Jonathan Glazer who gave high praise for her original ideas.
