Since its formation in 2006 Directors Notes (often referred to as DN) has been regarded as one of the web’s leading curatorial platforms for independent film, working with filmmakers to create in-depth feature articles which reveal the painstaking production stories behind their award winning work for a worldwide audience of industry professionals, festival curators and dedicated film fans. Eclectic in its tastes, Directors Notes is where you can find the most cutting edge films regardless of genre, length or technique.

Who We Are
MarBelle // Co-Founder // Editor-in-Chief
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the multi-decade incarnation of this disorder and remains so much cheaper than film school.
Serafima // Writer
Serafima lives and breathes shorts, and when she’s not animating or cutting them in the edit suite, she’s usually watching or writing about them. She also draws and eats hot chillies.
Sarah // Writer
Sarah has two passions in life, cinema & travel. If she isn’t fantasising of life on a sun-soaked beach far from her home in Brighton she is indulging in films.
