MICHAEL DAVIES is a BAFTA and RTS award-winning director and screenwriter, working in film, TV and theatre.
Following a BA in Drama from Manchester University and an MA in Film and Television from Bristol University, Michael began his career at BBC Television Features, making documentaries, before moving into drama-documentaries, dramatised adventure and factual entertainment.
He was selected for the BFI London Film Festival's Think Shoot Distribute course for emerging feature film directors, won a place on the Directing Actors course at the NFTS, and made the shortlist (of 25 out of 1000) for the prestigious BBC TV Drama Writers Programme 2017.
Michael worked on the hit BBC children’s drama Tracy Beaker Returns, winning a BAFTA and two RTS awards.
His first short film What’s ‘Virgin’ Mean? has screened at over sixty international festivals, winning eight awards and attracting more than ten million hits on YouTube. Unusually for short film, it also made a profit.
Michael's second short, Love At First Sight, starring Phyllida Law and John Hurt, was supported by the Wellcome Trust and a Secret Millionaire. It's won fourteen awards, including an RTS, Rushes and Raindance, and was shortlisted for an Oscar.
