Jules Nurrish

Honored in 2011 as a “Brit to Watch” by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Jules Nurrish is a screenwriter and film director based in Los Angeles. A graduate of the Master’s Program in Directing at the UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television, she has written and directed ten short films which have screened at film festivals and cultural institutions worldwide, including the British Film Institute and the Director’s Guild of America.
