Academy Films Signs New Director Sarah Clift
Sometime copywriter, sometime art director and now, full time director; Sarah Clift has joined Academy and A+.  She has a wealth of knowledge through 18 years in the ad industry working up from  creative to global creative director before departing to write and direct.

With a plethora of big name agencies under her belt Sarah has created work for Adidas, The COI, Guinness, McDonald’s and Samsung to name a few.  Among others, she has worked under Tim Delaney, Peter Souter, Jon Burley and Jim Thornton.

Although she has co-directed a few projects before, Sarah’s first solo piece as writer/director was the short film ‘La Madre Buena’.  It is a beautifully crafted work, which shows the ethical dilemma of a mother between her son and her politics.  “Award winning” doesn’t come close to describing the film’s success.  ‘La Madre Buena’ has 50+ laurel wreaths, a YDA Gold, a Lion nomination at Cannes and 5 Golds at Kinsale.  It will be screened at the Academy Awards building later in September.

Sarah studied graphic design and advertising, then the postgraduate course at Watford under Tony Cullingham, yet her CV has a wealth of other talents including cowgirl and stand-up comedian.
