Emily McDonald is an award-winning director based in London, UK.
With a focus on uncovering honest and unique stories within society, Emily’s work challenges our cultural ideas. She has carved her path as a director by learning to partner with brands to tell these stories, without compromising the energy or spirit of documentary filmmaking.
Emily takes a proudly ethical approach to her work and believes that “this will always lead to telling the most compelling story.” Receiving recognition for both her documentary and commercial work, Emily has won numerous awards including a Gold Young Director’s Award at Cannes.
Corin West, co-founder of The Visionaries says; ‘Emily’s work has a distinct and pure identity that effortlessly glides through multiple genres from sports documentary to fashion. Her work often celebrates and tells the stories of LGBT+ and marginalised voices in an authentic way that makes the viewer lean in and listen. It’s an extraordinary skill that is so rare in modern filmmaking that often overlooks the narrative as a trade off for electric visuals. Emily has so much to offer brands and the creative industries, I’m looking forward to seeing how the next stages of her career unfold.’
