Director Biography - Paul Edward Foulkes

Living in Japan for the better part of 36 yrs. Paul has been involved in Radio, TV and managing Japanese Musical artists. My love of the arts has bought me to this crossroads in my life.
Paul Began his Journey into Film making in 2015 when he produced the Award-winning Short Film “Aimer” a LGBTQ+ fantasy Short which won best fantasy Short at the New Renaissance Film Festival in Amsterdam in 2017.
Paul’s second Short Film (Directed, Produced and Acted by Paul) “Reflections” an LGBTQ+ Film about a crossdresser, won Best documentary short at the “Norcal International Film Festival” October 2019, and “Best Original Soundtrack (Migliore Colona Sonora)” at the Live Musica Contest (Concorsa Vivere di Musical) December 2019.
“HIV may have saved my Life” is a Feature Documentary about Paul’s life, a true story about living with the condition “HIV” the good the bad, and the ugly, about a condition that has put fear into the roots of our humanity. A condition which not only affects the person who has it but the people involved in his life. HIV Saved My Life has won over 20 Film awards worldwide.
Paul’s life goal is to Direct and produce Shorts and features which bring into light social issues, both the dark side and the success stories which have evolved from the dark side.
The last project is about the sexual abuse of underage women, and how they have found a way to find their “Voice” and be public in a society that still today suppresses their right to have that “Voice” This Movie has been awarded Best of the Festival at the WRPN Women's International Film Festival Spring 2021

This Feature is a little from the trodden path, and yet still deals with Social Issues, in this case, the stigma's and behind-the-scenes stories about beauty queens, and what it really takes to become a pageant winner. There is definitely some surprising yet funny stuff in this one. I had a lot of fun making this one
