Award winning filmmaker & photojournalist, Fiona Lloyd-Davies has been making films and taking pictures about human rights issues in areas of conflict since 1992, including in Bosnia, Iraq, Pakistan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Her film about Honour Killing in Pakistan ‘License to Kill’ for BBC2 was awarded a Royal Television Society award for Best International Journalism. Her work combines journalism with a strong visual style that she learnt as a graduate of the Royal College of Art.
Fiona films much of her own work, drawing out intensely personal and difficult stories from people often at their most vulnerable; drawing the viewer into the subject’s life to render a deeply drawn portrait, while preserving the dignity and integrity of their story. Over a 25 year career she has made films for many networks as well as leading NGOs such as Human Rights Watch. She has just completed a Master of Studies degree in International Relations at Cambridge University.
