Emma Miranda Moore’s work is concerned with human connection of all kinds and she demonstrates "a true affinity for depicting realistic human relationships and nuances" (Berlin Art Link) She has developed a unique aesthetic, described as "realist yet cinematic textures" (Director's Notes). This was partly formed by working as a successful photographer before she began her directing career. Having completed several short films she is now developing her first feature and is focussed on long form work.

Recent projects include short film ‘RUN’ which stars EastEnder’s Maddy Hill and is produced by Dominic Minghella’s Island Pictures. It was nominated for Best International Short at Flickerfest (Australia) and Schlingel Filmfestival (Germany). It has played numerous festivals worldwide since its premiere at London Short Film Festival. 

"Compelling and unexpected, "Run" is a portrait of abuse in the home and ... a tribute to the necessity and power of human connection." - Omeleto

She wrote and directed YA monologue 'JACKSON' which has screened at Underwire (nominated Best Actor), Hollyshorts, IndieCork and many more. It was nominated for Best Short Film at BUFF Malmö, Sweden.

"(An audience is) left unsure what is fantasy and what is reality" - BUFF Malmö

Previously, Emma wrote and directed coming of age micro short ‘LIT’, which won the Raindance Film Festival One Minute Heartache competition and was awarded Main Prize in Depict at Encounters Film Festival by a jury including Sorcha Bacon and Rachel Morrison ASC.

"Simple, brilliantly directed and economical, pinging a small arpeggio of emotional effects despite (or because of) its basic economy of means with some impressive performances from its young cast from a promising director that shows great potential.” - Sorcha Bacon

Emma’s commercial work includes spots for Speech & Language UK, Dove, Ecover and Barclays and many more. She carries her trademark storytelling language into her commercials and loves to combine imaginative visual flair with nuanced performance.

"The emotional beats in the story...leave the audience with an ending message of hope." - Shots

She wrote and directed ‘100%’, a short Romantic Comedy sponsored by The Ritz-Carlton as part of their ‘The Stay’ series produced by Hearst. Her mentor during production was Mike Figgis. Shot in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, '100%' won Best International Director at Houston Comedy Film Festival and Best Rom Com at Hollywood Comedy Short Film Festival.

"(A) clever take on the genre... turning a story that could have just been about romance into one that focused first and foremost on female friendship."

Emma is a member of BAFTA Connect, WFTV, Cinesisters and Director's UK and is part of the DUK Inspire Mentorship Scheme 2023/4.
