Anna Hall

Anna has been making films for over 20 years. She's been nominated for 5 BAFTAS in the last 4 years and is the only woman ever to be nominated in two consecutive years for the BAFTA CRAFT Best Factual Director Award. She's best known for her 17 year enquiry into gang grooming and broke the CSE story in 2004 with her first feature length doc 'Edge of the City' for Channel 4. Since then she's made a further two films on the subject for Channel 4 and won the hugely prestigious Women in Film & TV Best Factual award and the RTS Journalism Award for "The Hunt for Britain's Sex Gangs" in 2013. She has gone on to make films about forced marriage and honour based abuse; domestic violence; coercive control and her most recent film looks at the subject of domestic violence through its hidden victims: the children living in abusive households.

Anna is Creative Director of True Vision Yorkshire and sees the company as fulfilling her life-long dream of providing a home for film-makers in the north. She has three kids, a husband and a dog - and absolutely no spare time!
