Since its world premiere, Red Crayon has won 11 awards on the international film festival circuit, including ‘Best Original Screenplay’, ‘Best Foreign Film and ‘One to Watch’.

Having competed at top tier film festivals including HotDocs 2020 and The Huesca International Film Festival, A Youth won the ‘Best Documentary’ award at Aspen ShortFest 2020 and Woodstock Film Festival 2020. ‘A Youth’ is currently in the running for the BAFTAs 2021 and Oscars 2021.

Further to her film-making duties, Charlotte began her screen career in the film Burnt (2015) alongside Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller. In 2019, Charlotte also received critical acclaim for her lead role in ‘We Must Throw The Cows Down The Ravine’, garnering a four-star review on The Evening Standard for her poignant theatrical performance. Charlotte was set to perform the lead role in Mehmet Bozkurt’s A Room For Rent at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe which has now been postponed.
