My name is Georgia Kumari Bradburn. I’m a filmmaker, writer and visual artist from London, UK. My experience of autism has shaped the way I see the world and heavily informs my practice, so I created this website to share my work in the hopes that it encourages other autistic creators to express themselves.
I am a graduate of Queen Mary University of London where I studied Film, including a year at the University of Texas at Austin in the Radio-Television-Film school. I am a frequent host on the Autism Through Cinema Podcast and a member of the UK based art collective Neurocultures. My written work on autism and film has led me to various opportunities, such as introducing a screening of Mulholland Drive at the Barbican in 2021, presenting at the Autism Through Cinema conference in 2023, and programming relaxed screenings for the British Film Institute in 2023.
My award nominated short film Out of Water is currently going through the festival circuit and will be released in 2023. Here is the teaser trailer.
I have recently worked on a feature film, The Stimming Pool, co-directed as a member of the Neurocultures Collective. The Stimming Pool is a hybrid feature film that enters the possibilities of a world informed by autistic perspectives and perception. The film was shot on super 16mm and I was lucky enough to undertake a camera apprenticeship during the shoot with our cinematographer Gregory Oke, who has previously worked as cinematographer on Aftersun (2022). Working on this feature has expanded my understanding of filmmaking and how autistic perspectives can truly inform the way we make films, and also how we watch them.
Alongside the feature film, we created an installation film as part of the Stim Cinema exhibition which is currently on display at Nottingham Castle.
Other upcoming projects include A Brief History of Circles, my undergraduate research project film, which will have its world premiere at the Barbican in February as part of the Stims: Towards a Neurodiverse Cinema programme. I am also producing a feature film, London After Midnight, directed by Josef Thompson, which is due to release this year.
I am available for commission for film projects and written work. If you would like to hire me, send me an email. I would love to work with you.
