Alicia MacDonald

Director

New Director's Showcase director Alicia cut her teeth in the industry as an assistant to various ground-breaking directors including Kevin Macdonald, Mike Leigh, James McTeigue and Justin Kurzel.

Having learnt from some of the best, in early 2015 she decided to try directing herself. Her debut comedy short film Otherwise Engaged was invited into a host of film festivals including the BFI London Film Festival and continues to garner a hugely positive response online. 

Since then she has written and directed two more short satirical films - Bachelorette and Domestic Policy. The latter was part funded by Film London, starred Lesley Manville and also played at LFF. She's directed sketches by comedy duo 'Mid-Brow' and music videos for Izo Fitzroy.
