Director Biography - Dympna Jardine

Following a career in journalism in London, Dympna switched to acting in the late 1990s. As well as acting in various classic and modern plays she created her stand-up comedy character Daisy as a homage to her Northern Irish roots. Her first film directing was ‘Paper Lips’ (2010), a teenage-coming-of-age comedy written by Ali Oxtoby and screened at Hay-on-Wye British Film Festival. In 2015 she wrote, directed and produced the pilot episode of sitcom Off Grid. Keen to develop her craft, Dympna enrolled in Screenwriting and Film Production BA Hons at her local university in Worcester, and graduated last year having made several student shorts.

Director Statement

I love finding connections in random situations and highlighting their significance with poetry and humour. I particularly like to take real life stories of misunderstood or overlooked people and have them heard.
