Sharpe Films is the website for Becky Sharpe, a film director committed to creating change through movement, story and process.
Becky tells stories about love - both queer and straight - and she has a commitment to diversity and inclusion, speaking her own truth from a perspective of invisible disability.
Becky's interest in filmmaking started as a teen, featuring in her photographer mum's super 8 movies and photos since young childhood. With a darkroom at home and access to artist supplies (and a super 8 splicer) in the kitchen, Becky was painting and making photos and films early on.
After postgrad film school at St Martins Becky made dance films and video installations for art galleries and nightclubs. The early award-winning films - NUMB, a movement film which featured five disabled women experiencing erotic pleasure through the senses, and VALENTINO, a short about a child's abandonment and the pursuit of Rudolph Valentino to heal her heart - set the tone for Becky’s later slate of work.
Becky Sharpe supported her art by working as a producer, shooting current affairs for WTN in East Africa and partnering in a Brixton-based company to develop feature scripts with a focus on diversity, raising funding from BFI, British Screen, EC Media II, The European Script Fund, and the National Lottery.
Following a masters in screenwriting at LCP Becky wrote several feature screenplays and continued to direct shorts, television and music videos in the UK and in Spain (where she lived for many years). Her short film, TATE DANCERS was created for and screened at the opening of the Tate Britain art gallery.
In 2022 Sharpe Films delivered its first UK feature film THE SURGEON, directed by Becky Sharpe, available to view on Amazon, Tubi, Apple TV, Google Play and Youtube Movies, and other streaming channels.
Becky is now developing her slate of projects at Sharpe Films, and is preparing the next feature film.
