Brian Hill works in both documentary and drama, and sometimes in a hybrid space between the two; as in films such as Feltham Sings, Drinking For England and Songbirds. His films have played at festivals all over the world, including Sundance, Rome, Tribeca, IDFA, CPH:Dox, Sydney and Barcelona. He has won three BAFTA’S and been nominated another seven times. In 2015 Bertha Dochouse showed a week long retrospective of Hill’s work. His most recent output includes Unprecedented, a series of 14 short dramas for the BBC about living in isolation during the pandemic. Actors in that included Gemma Arterton, Lenny James, Rory Kinnear, Paterson Joseph and Geraldine James. He is currently making a film with the poet laureate, Simon Armitage, about the pandemic.
