Rosie Reed Hillman


Rosie Reed Hillman is a documentary filmmaker, photographer and social researcher. Her short film "Cailleach" (2014)- a portrait of a woman living a unique, wild life in the Outer Hebrides- was created through Scottish Documentary Institute’s Bridging the Gap scheme and has won 6 festival awards including Best Short at San Francisco International Film Festival and been screened at 30 festivals internationally. The film was selected for inclusion on US polemic quality film streaming service The Criterion Channel. Rosie was selected as a participant on the prestigious European Social Documentary program 2017 attending film training residencies in Italy and Norway.

Rosie's approach to film making draws on her experiences in her first career in social care working in both policy and front line support roles for women's organisations and supporting homeless and vulnerable people. Her MA in Visual Anthropology from the Granada Centre, University of Manchester also informs her unobtrusive but curious approaches to working with people through film. Rosie wants her films to make an impact through connecting audiences to personal and compelling stories told with people not about them. 

As well as developing her own creative documentary projects Rosie works on third sector, arts and any other interesting commissions and has taught on the MA Documentary Film program at the Northern Film School, Leeds Beckett University. Rosie is one half of Between Their Eyes Film, with filmmaker partner in crime Scott Dulson.
