Belfast born Kathryn Ferguson is an award-winning Director and Documentary Filmmaker & a Film Research Fellow at London College of Fashion, currently living and working in London.

Kathryn creatively reimagines storytelling by stretching the conventions of cinéma vérité through her art direction, subtle humour, experimental visuals, and choreography. Her work is focused around creating more positive portrayals of women on screen. Her films focus on representations of the real by featuring stories of people who are not generally represented in the widespread media and challenging non-inclusive tropes within advertising, fashion and music.

Kathryn’s documentaries, music videos, fashion films, and commercials have been screened globally on platforms such as the BBC, Nowness, Dazed and Confused and i-D. Her work, which often has a socio-political message at its core, has won a host of awards. As well as working as a freelance director, Kathryn spent several years working as Selfridges Resident Film Director where she directed most of the moving image content for the brand.

International brands and musicians she has worked with include Nike, Amnesty International, Selfridges, Vogue, Air France, Girls Who Code, Dev Hynes & Neneh Cherry, Chloé, Sinead O’Connor and Lady Gaga. In 2017 Kathryn was awarded a Gold Creative Bravery Award at the Kinsale Shark Awards for “25 Annoying Things”, a Repeal the 8th film for Amnesty International and a Vimeo Staff Pick for her film ‘Incredible Machines”. Kathryn’s latest documentary “Taking The Waters” premiered at Sheffield Doc Fest in June 2018 and is screening at festivals around the world.

Kathryn is currently working on two new projects including a new documentary short for The Guardian’s documentary film series with Passion Pictures that is due to be released in 2020 and “Nothing Compares”, a feature documentary that’s due to be released in 2021.
