Paul Andrew Williams

Award winning British writer and director for film, TV and theatre

Writer and Director for television and film. My work is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades including two BAFTA nominations and the Edinburgh International Festival New Director's Award.

In 2003, I was the only UK-based director to be chosen for the Fox Searchlight Director's Lab. My subsequent work, the short film IT’S OKAY TO DRINK WHISKEY, premiered at 2004's Sundance Film Festival.

In addition to two BAFTA nominations, LONDON TO BRIGHTON won the Raindance Jury Prize for UK Feature and Best Achievement in Production at the British Independent Film Awards. It was named by the Guardian as the Best British Film of the year.

Other features include CHERRY TREE LANE (Film4 Frightfest participant 2010) and SONG FOR MARION starring Terence Stamp and Gemma Arterton. The latter was chosen in the Official Selection for both the Toronto Film Festival and London Film Festival (2012).

In 2014, the TV movie MURDERED BY MY BOYFRIEND was greeted with universal acclaim for its authentic portrayal of domestic violence against young British women.

Alongside my new play, Ticking, I also have several other projects currently in development.
