Jackie Nunns & Angie West
After years of being part of film festival audiences, Angie & Jackie asked themselves "How hard can it be to make a short film?" and set about finding out. Their first short CHILDSPLAY (2011) screened at the 2012 London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and Santa Barbara Outrageous festival. The documentaries ANGIE & JACKIE FINAL CUT (2011) and MARK BUNYAN: VERY NEARLY ALMOST FAMOUS (2012) screened all over the world including San Fransisco Frameline (2013), Sydney Mardi Gras, (2013), Athens, Outview (2014) and many others, and won the Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival Audience Choice Awards in 2013 and 2014. The duo continue to collaborate with other filmmakers and artistes and their sixth short, FEMALE MASCULINITY APPRECIATION SOCIETY (2014) is enjoying success on the international lesbian and gay film festival circuit. They are currently working on their first feature film.
