Charlotte George

"I love the imagination of this film – the most thoughts – the wittiest- and a profound point at the bottom of it" - Richard Curtis, judging the Robin Hood Tax film competition, 2011.


“Charlotte was brilliant... She's self confident, bright and outgoing and has the vital knack of getting her own way with charm.”  - Mike Newell, Director

Charlotte is an award-winning drama writer and director. Her films have screened at festivals around the world - including Berlin Interfilm, Melbourne International Film Festival, FlickerFest, London Australian Film Festival and Rhode Island Film Festival. Her second block of Hollyoaks in 2017 (shared with Tessa Hoffe) contributed to Ross Adams winning "Best Male Performance" at the British Soap Awards for the storyline about Scott's suicide attempt.

[Online films for Banana were] “absolutely delightful.  Really fun and light and entertaining.  And they show the cast in a great light.  Lovely!” - Russell T Davies, Writer/EP on Banana

Directing "Me & My Dad" web series for Inside Job Productions

Since moving to London in 2008, I have worked continuously as a director and writer, making more than 100 short films, as well as directing broadcast TV and developing feature film and original TV projects.

In 2011 I was the online director for Series 3 of EastEnders: E20 (BBC3) and made behind-the-scenes content for the flagship drama. That same year I wrote and directed a new online drama series aimed at teenage fathers, Me and My Dad, for award-winning website YoungDads.TV and later directed a soap opera written by young people, Dead Ends, for Nick Hornby’s literacy charity Ministry of Stories.

I have directed the Electronic Press Kit for many high-profile drama series, including Happy Valley Series 2, From Darkness, The Honourable Woman (BBC), No Offence and Banana (for C4/E4). In 2016 I was selected to take part in the Channel 4/Directors UK scheme for women directors on Hollyoaks and then went on to direct 4 episodes, before taking time out earlier this year to have a baby.

As a writer, I have a feature film in development, Bird, with Underground Films in Dublin, supported by the Irish Film Board, as well as a TV comedy with Urban Myth/Guilty Party, Invisible, along with other original projects.

I excel in exploring difficult subject matters but with wit and warmth. My aim is to write and direct high quality, entertaining fiction projects, which have the potential to introduce new audiences to characters and situations they might not otherwise encounter.
