Jade Jackman is an emerging filmmaker and journalist who is making a name for herself due to her innovative approach to human rights related issues. Combining journalistic integrity with a boundary pushing aesthetic, she has become sought after by brands and publications alike. Her unique style has seen her recognised by the British Film Institute’s Future Film Festival, as best young director for her documentary about immigration entitled ‘Calling Home’ as well as being celebrated by Amnesty on International Women’s Day as a female human rights defender. She has worked as a staff reporter for VICE as well as freelancing for clients such as the Guardian, the Huffington Post, the Victoria & Albert, El Tiempo, I-D, Dazed & Confused, NOWNESS, Boiler Room and Gucci.

She is interested in stories that relate to gender-based violence, equality and the criminal justice system. More recently, people have started to suggest she should switch genres from documentary to horror… she is increasingly thinking her style combines both.

She is currently represented by Black Dog Films which is part of Ridley Scott Creative Group.
