About The Team
Founder I Director
Jennifer G. Robinson
Included in a career of 20 plus years, Jennifer has Journalism, Public Relations, Education and Film as part of her skill-set. Her first foray into festival production came with the Black Filmmaker International Film Festival created by filmmaker Menelik Shabazz (Burning An Illusion/The Story Of Lovers Rock). In addition to Women Of The Lens, Jennifer has a communications consultancy and other projects in development.
To say that Jennifer is ‘passionate’ about the industry is clichéd, but it is the best word to use, which describes her innate commitment and loyalty to create and deliver a Festival of integrity which grows to fulfil its and her vision.
Building on her own filmmaking career as a Producer and now Director, Laurelle has been the Festival’s Coordinator since 2017 to 2019. Laurelle graduated with a 2:1 BA in Media Arts, Film and TV. Her film credits include I Woke Up This Morning Wanting To Kiss You and most recently a webseries called Hidden Secrets.
