Anastasia Bruce-Jones

Anastasia Bruce-Jones is an award-winning writer and director.


They directed theatre for 6 years, including in the West End, Almeida Theatre and Edinburgh Fringe. Their productions received exclusively 4 and 5* reviews, and won both OnComm and OffComm awards. 


In 2021 they completed their first short film, ‘All Girls’, which premiered at Aesthetica Film Festival and won Best Ensemble Performance at Cornwall Film Festival. In 2022, they won a commission from the BFI Film Academy to make 'Microwave', a queer dystopian love story, which premiered at Two Short Nights Film Festival and is currently entering the festival circuit.

Anastasia's feature script 'False Positive' and HE-TV series 'The Highwaymen' are both in development with Emergence Films.


Anastasia's work explores the depth and strangeness of experience, often by way of magic realism, dystopia and folk horror.

"Art is a way to the wilderness of the unconscious, the land of spirits and the dead. If great works of art are prophetic, it is because they disclose the forces that seethe behind the easy façade of ordinary time. ...Not just the plays of Shakespeare and Sophocles, but also the poems of Emily Dickinson, the songs of Bob Dylan, the choreographies of Pina Bausch, the films of David Lynch. All of them are oracles."
