Emma Holly Jones

Born in England at the end of 1988, Emma is a British filmmaker and director. Emma attended the Lee Strasberg Institute for a year before deciding to write, produce, direct, and edit her first short film. In 2010 this film was selected for the New-filmmakers Festival in New York and the Bel Air Film Festival, where she won Best Audience Short Film at 21 years old.

Highlights of her recent work include a one shot music video for Katharine McPhee’s “Night and Day”, several short documentaries around Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter, an interview series called ‘Lines We Love’ for the Autograph Collection & The Black List and a documentary for Vogue on Bella Thorne (which has been viewed more than 5 million times.)

Emma’s first short film ‘Everything Carries Me To You’ starred Emmy Award winner Matthew Rhys and Janet Montgomery and screened at festivals in both Los Angeles & London, Emma also penned the script.

Emma’s second short film, “Mr. Malcolm’s List: Overture,” debuted as part of Refinery29’s Shatterbox anthology series and became its most watched installment in less than 72 hours with more than 5 million organic impressions across social channels. The feature version of MR MALCOLM’S LIST, a period romantic comedy and former Black List Table Reads podcast, is now in pre-production and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) will star.

Emma has also recently completed shadowing on NBC’s Timeless, HBO’s Camping and FOX’s Fresh Off The Boat in early 2018.

Emma currently resides between Los Angeles & London.
