James Doherty 


I’m a Mancunian-Irish writer/director making films about family, troubled masculinity and those living on the fringes of society. My debut short film BREATHE won awards internationally and was showcased by the BFI and British Council.


Currently doing the festival circuit: NEON MEETS ARGON - a neon-infused apprenticeship drama, comissioned by Screen Ireland for their flagship Focus Shorts scheme.

Next up: My first episode of TV, details coming soon.

Also in development, and selected for Torino Film Lab Next 2021, is my first feature: LET US LIVE.

I also create visual spectacles for artists like Tame Impala, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Katy Perry, through my animation company RUCKUS
