Yorkshire-born Clio Barnard is an award-winning artist and filmmaker whose work has been displayed in international film festivals and art galleries such as the Tate Modern and New York's MoMA.

Bernardo Bertolucci was born in Parma in 1941. In 1961, he served as Pier Paolo Pasolini's first assistant director for 'Accattone'. The scandalous 'Last Tango in Paris' (1972) marked the beginning of a great success which continued with the historical epic 'The Last Emperor' (1987), winner of 9 Oscars. He has received a Cannes Palme d'Or d'Honneur, and full retrospectives at the BFI and New York's MoMA.
Danny Boyle was born in Lancashire, United Kingdom in 1956. He started his career in theatre, but moved on to television drama at BBC Northern Ireland. From his feature debut 'Shallow Grave' (1994), he has established himself as one of the liveliest and most unpredictable of British directors, adept at shifting genres and bringing a personal quality to whatever he tackles.
Robert Bresson (1901-1999) was one of the foremost artists of French cinema, whose work displayed a singular vision and an unmistakable style, leaving a remarkable legacy of enduring masterpieces. His uncompromising films were immune to passing cinematic fashions, yet his influence has been acknowledged by such directors as Martin Scorsese and Bernado Bertolucci.
Andrew Bujalski has been named 'The Godfather of Mumblecore' by New York magazine, a movement characterised by low-budgets and amateur actors, which is heavily focused on natural performance and dialogue. Most of Bujalski's films were shot on 16mm film or on homevideo cameras, giving his work a lo-fi feel, while his middle-class, out of university characters often strive for stability.
Washington native Jay Bulger is a director, freelancer writer, international fashion model and amateur boxer.
Born in New York but moving to Tel Aviv aged one, Rama Burshtein joined Orthodox Judaism at 25 and has since forged a fascinating career as a filmmaker studying the mechanics and relations within this community. Originally part of a collective of Orthodox Jewish women filmmakers who funded, produced, directed and wrote films for themselves, Burshtein spent 15 years working on her first feature 'Fill the Void' (2012). Like her subsequent feature 'Through the Wall', 'Fill the Void' unfolds around a wedding. But that's where any similarity between the films end. Her debut is a serious drama that plays out as an existential inquiry into the nature of human relationships. 'Through the Wall', by marked contrast, is a comedy that details the doubts and dramas that surround the lead-up to a wedding.
