Jonell Rowe is a London and Bristol based independent writer, director and editor who first ventured into the arts through studying drama and fine art, at The BRIT School of performing arts. After graduating in 2011 with both a BTEC National and extended diploma in drama, Jonell went on to complete writers course at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in 2012 and along with other creatives, founded the production company "Lionstooth films".
His style of work focuses on emotions spiralling out of control, affecting an individual's actions, which in turn affects the world around them. He also explores a mixture themes and genres such as sci-fi, dark comedy, personal identity and the threat of technology. Jonell wrote and directed his first short film "E.D.D." in 2014. A psychological, fantasy, drama that explored the themes of hate, man vs himself and zen Buddhism. In 2015 "E.D.D." was accepted and screened at various festivals, most notably the Cannes short film corner.
Since then, Jonell has gone on to write and direct three additional short films for Lionstooth, that have been recognised by industry professionals, that have nominated his work for best short films at the Flyde film festival in March, 2017, Uk monthly film festival in May 2017 and was runner up in the best short film category at the London city film awards in October, 2017.

All stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you fought against as a youth: you begin to realize they're stereotypes because they're true.
