James Doherty 

I’m an Irish Mancunian writer/director making films about family, troubled masculinity and those living on the fringes of society.

Putting the finishing sparkle on THE LONG F*** OFF for Channel 4’s 4Stories / OnTheEdge rising talent strand - My TV directorial debut - airing August

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

My debut short film BREATHE won awards internationally and was showcased by the BFI and British Council.

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