CHARLOTTE MIKKELBORG

Bio

Lauded by Vice as one of the “female filmmakers revolutionizing how we see the world”, Charlotte Mikkelborg is a British director - who first gained recognition as a BBC foreign correspondent - and has more recently become known for her work directing gripping character-driven non fiction film and virtual reality. Charlotte’s work packs an emotional punch with the aim of driving social change. Her debut 360 documentary Born into Exile - the harrowing yet hopeful story of two pregnant Syrian refugees – screened in the US Houses of Congress and at the first UN Special Summit on Refugees, leading to the commitment of funds to helping alleviate the plight of Syrian refuges, and a finalist in the 2017 Cine Golden Eagle Awards.

Charlotte’s work continues to explore how we can harness fast developing interactive technology for more emotionally resonant storytelling.
