We’re delighted to welcome Amelia Hashemi to our directing roster! 

Amelia is a half Iranian, half English writer/director, hailing loudly and proudly from Leeds. Her background as a casting director comes to the fore in her work with authentic, heartfelt characters and beautifully observed, nuanced performances. 

Amelia broke into the world of commercials with her campaign for Volkswagen, a series of 3 branded films highlighting VW’s partnership with the Motability Scheme. The films, each adroitly addressing a different disability, went on to screen at Cannes Lions and were nominated at the Campaign Big Awards.

It’s a pleasure to have Amelia on board at MindsEye.
