JE Swainston
Cambridge, Canada

I'm a filmmaker; writer - director - producer with a love of multiple genres - sci fi, comedy, thriller, horror, action, and more. My work reflects the themes I want to see onscreen; finding a place to belong, creating family where you can, female protagonists in all walks of life, diversity, and women of all ages, shapes and size.  In 2021 I sold three short scripts and received a festival selection for my screenplay Eden's Paradise from the Beyond the Curve International Film Festival. I have also run a table read workshop for other writers under my Twitter account @UnicornFilmsLtd.

I put my passion for stories into each project and strive to create a positive environment for other creatives. You can find me on Twitter most days.
