Charlotte Couture

Charlotte is passionate about making films that provide a window to a life that might ordinarily be overlooked. She hopes to depict life, relationships and human behaviour in a deeply authentic way, and through a different lens to the one we’re used to.

Her distinctive filmmaking approach is defined by its stark and poetic visuals, and intensely human characters.

Charlotte began her film career working in programming for the British Film Institute. Since then she has gone on to write and direct several films under her company, Seven Light Films. She recently wrote and directed the short film Rose, made in collaboration with the Big C Charity. Rose's world premiere was at the Cheltenham International Film Festival 2023, alongside Loach's film 'The Old Oak'. It is BIFA-qualified, recently screening at Crystal Palace International Film Festival and Unrestricted View. Her directorial debut was Different Day, which won Best British Short Film at Cornwall Film Festival, the Jury's Choice Award at The South London Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Film and Best Director at Unrestricted View. Her first film, O, My Friend (2019), which she wrote and produced, was nominated for best film at the Wales International Film Festival and screened at festivals around the world.

She currently has several projects in development including a feature film and short films.

Charlotte has been accepted onto the Directors UK Inspire mentoring programme, 2024-25.
