Nasfim Haque joined BBC Wales as a production trainee in 2002 before directing her first film for BBC Three’s Fresh scheme. She then moved on to BBC Birmingham and Manchester Vision studios to help develop factual and feature ideas such as Hairy Bakers, Indian Food Made Easy and The Satanic Verses Affair for BBC Two.
Having worked as a producer at companies such as Two Four, Love and Century Films, Nasfim was selected for the Creative Diversity Network commissioner development scheme. She spent 12-months at Channel 4 as Commissioning Executive within their documentaries team helping to commission new directors and look after returning series.
After joining BBC Three as Deputy Editor in 2016, Nasfim was soon appointed Short-form Commissioner earlier this year where she is responsible for a range of content from indies.
She has previously worked at BBC Wales and BBC Media Action on multi-platform shorts, and last summer helped set up ‘Woke’ – a globally conscious Facebook news site.
