Alex Emanuel

Producer / Director


Alex Emanuel is a London based filmmaker working across narrative and documentary projects. He regularly shoots, produces and directs factual content for television broadcasters all over the globe, for which he has gained an exemplary reputation. The 2016 narrative short film that he wrote and directed, ‘The Storyteller’, screened at over twenty film festivals across the world, winning four major prizes on the circuit.


Alex won a Royal Television Society Scotland Award and MIND Media Award for his work on 2016 BBC One documentary about maternal mental health, My Baby, Psychosis and Me and his episode of BBC Four’s Africa: A Journey Into Music was praised as “stirring and poignant” by The Guardian. Online, social cuts of his films have had millions of views on Youtube and Facebook including BBC Three’s Plastic Surgery Capital of the World. In 2018, Alex spent the year developing stories and producing content on the African continent, which has led to a host of documentary work in the region including making films for award-winning current affairs strand BBC Africa Eye.


Alex has a special interest in the hybrid documentary-narrative form and has several feature length projects in development in this style.
