We are a collective of female directors making award-winning films and TV.
We are BAFTA winners, RTS winners, Emmy nominees, Screen Stars of Tomorrow, Broadcast Hotshots and Breakthrough Brits. We have screened and won awards at festivals all over the globe and we are working with the top broadcasters, public funders and production companies.
Our goal is to share our experience and resources with each other in order to create more films by and about women. We run monthly meetings, masterclasses, a writers group and support each other’s theatrical & small screen releases.
The first Cinesisters meeting took place in August 2014 with only four of us: Rebecca Johnson, Nicola Mills, Claire Oakley and Jo Coates. We now have more than 150 members and the collective is run by a team of amazing volunteers.
In order to join CINESISTERS you need to be a female director who has either made a feature film, has a broadcast TV credit, or has made at least 3 short films and is attached to direct a feature film that is either in funded development or a completed first draft. If you qualify please email us on
