FILM – PRODUCER
We feel very privileged and excited to announce that Mr Craig Tuohy will be joining us on the Q&A panel tomorrow night! We just know it’s going to be brilliantly insightful, so don’t miss out!
Craig Tuohy has twenty years experience in the film industry. He spent the first ten years in post production and distribution at Disney and 20th Century Fox, working on the release of films such as BORAT, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and THE INCREDIBLES before starting his own production company in 2008. After a few years producing award winning music videos for artists such as Frank Turner, Biffy Clyro and Bring me the Horizon Craig chased his lifelong dream of becoming a film producer.
His first feature credit was as co-producer on the Sundance Grand Jury winner LIKE CRAZY. Since then Craig has produced nine feature films (and also directed one), which have played at festivals such as Edinburgh, Rotterdam, Cannes and SXSW. His 2015 film RISE OF THE KRAYS is the highest grossing DTV (Direct to video) release in the UK in the last five years. Craig’s films have been instrumental in launching the careers of some genuine global superstars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Felicity Jones & Sofia Boutella, who all had early breakout roles in movies Craig produced. In the past year Craig has had a box office hit with the film ANOTHER MOTHER’S SON, which was released in the UK on over 200 screens, and his latest film as Executive Producer MY PURE LAND has received rave reviews and has been nominated for the Michael Powell award at the Edinburgh film festival, as well as being this year’s British submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
