About the Filmmaker
Clare Unsworth is a Folkestone-based filmmaker with a strong focus on collaborative projects and social issues. She graduated with a BA (Hons) in Film and Television Production from The Cambridge School of Art in 2012, with a specialization in directing. In 2014, her short, poetic film, She Said, was screened across 50 venues as part of Folkestone Fringe’s pop-up cinema event. In 2011, she was commissioned by Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum to make a short film inspired by their exhibition, Vermeer’s Women: Secrets and Silence. Her response, Write, went on to be screened at the Cambridge Picturehouse alongside Paul Webber’s 2003 film, Girl With a Pearl Earring.
More recently, she has been working with activist and spoken word poet, Leah Thorn, to produce short films challenging sexism. Their first collaborative film, Count, has gone on to be featured in a number of international festivals.
