I remember the first time I went to Cannes Film Festival nearly 7 years ago. I was my daughters plus one. I was her chaperone, I had to make up why I should be allowed in. How things were so different this year. I had......

“Everyday, you should do something that takes you a step further toward what YOU want to do.” This is what award winning director Elizabeth Blake-Thomas preaches during The Seth Markzon Podcast session with her daughter Isabella. In this conversation, Elizabeth dives into her daily regimen......

This is a blog with a little bit of everything. It’s a catch up on the last month. A play, as seen in my last blog. Three radio interviews and a podcast. All links are on my site here: https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Felizabethblakethomas.co.uk%2Fshowreel%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C40483713c7ba4eb5e13708d5a3c69bab%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636594995758471261&sdata=qzsnv6HFv7xxRKeqawFGi3OMy%2B9q4cfv5bfVVdZEM3s%3D&reserved=0 As well as post for......

I was in the play as the title role aged 12 so this play has always been an important part of my theatre soul. I was approached by a friend to see if I wanted to run a theatre evening locally. I said I would......

I’ve written this blog in honor of international women’s day. This is what a female filmmaker really looks like. It’s 5.30am. Time to pack up breakfast and lunch to take for the day. 6am. Time to wake up my daughter. 6.30am leave the house with......

This is the working title for my latest film The Sounds of Silence. It is inspired by the true story of the Orphanages Closure in Romania. We shot for two weeks on two black magics and shot most of the scenes in a studio. Our......

Three years ago I attended Lady Filmmakers Festival in Beverly Hills. It’s run by Mike and Patricia Viayra. Not only do they run the festival and it’s now in its 9th year but they are also filmmakers. Basically practicing what they preach. The weekend is......

Every single film experience I have is always the best and I never believe they can get better. The cast and crew become my family for those few weeks. However this one was on another level. What I mean by that was the amount of......

Yes I’m crazy, yes I’ve heard a boat owners favourite days are the day they buy it and the day they sell it. Well I have to disagree. This boat is my haven. My writing my space. My timeout. I decided over the space of......

I have been lucky enough to meet my mentor. This person would not want to be mentioned but they have become my best friend. Someone who is helping me work out not only my personal life but also my professional life. Wise and kind I......

A book, a real book. A book you can actually hold. This was a totally surreal moment when people started to send me photos of themselves holding my book. It was even more surreal when I held it. Also incredibly surreal to hear your daughter......

I was asked to speak about my film making experiences in front of about fifty filmmakers. It felt such an honour to be asked to speak. In terms of filmmaking I’m a total newbie. Four features in my first year as a female director. I’ve......

This is one of my favourite festivals that takes place in San Jose. This year was my fifth year of attending. The films are great, the filmmakers are always interesting and the people that run the festival with the help of the volunteers are some......

I am very proud to announce I am a full member of the Alliance of Women Directors. This isn’t a group of women in competition with each other, or a group of women sitting complaining about the male domination of our industry, it is a......

I had the pleasure of sitting in a small theatre in Downtown Hollywood with ten Academy Nominees a couple of nights ago. The writers and or directors of the following films: Hell or Highwater Hidden Figures Manchester by the Sea Lion Moonlight La la land......

As Martin Scorsese correctly called it, this film is “delicate”. The writer and director Jeff Nichols wrote this as a first draft and didn’t alter anything. He is the same age as me and as I look at my career over the last year as......

Finished shooting! Now what happens? The last day of shooting is always so depressing. The family that exists from spending four weeks together making two amazing new babies (films not actual babies because that would be weird) means that when the family separate I feel......
