Tom Boyd-Hall (he/him) is an 18-year-old director, writer and editor from Buckinghamshire and a passionate story teller to his core.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Tom directed, acted in and edited over 15 short films, ranging from dark comedies to horrors, of which many were selected to compete in small competitions or film festivals. His short film One-Minute Man (2021), one of the final films Tom created during the pandemic, was selected by Into Film as their July 2021 Film of the Month. Tom has since directed a film shot at Pinewood Studios, has had two productions selected for the International Youth Film Festival, and directed a film as part of the BFI Film Academy x National Film and Television School Craft Skills Residential, which later screened at the BFI Southbank Cinema.

Most recently, he was selected to attend, and subsequently completed, a Directing Comedy short course at the National Film and Television School, taught by the award-winning film director and screenwriter Col Spector. Tom is also an avid writer, having written film reviews for a local publication and, as a result, was chosen by Sony Pictures to attend an invite-only press screening of Father Stu (2022) in London.
