BAFTA-Winning Director John Crowley Signs to RSA

February 13, 2020

RSA Films welcomes award-winning theatre and film director John Crowley to the UK/US roster.

A versatile storyteller with a background in directing both Broadway and West End productions, John also directs episodic television, commercials, and feature films.

His 2015 film ‘Brooklyn’, starring Saoirse Ronan, received three Academy Award nominations and won the Best British Film BAFTA. BBC named ‘Brooklyn’ as one of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century.

John first received critical acclaim for his 2003 feature ‘Intermission’, following with ‘Boy A’ (Andrew Garfield, Peter Mullan) for which he won the Best Director BAFTA TV. Additional feature credits include ‘Is Anybody There?’ starring Michael Caine, and his most recent film, 2019’s ‘The Goldfinch’, adapted from the Donna Tartt novel by Peter Straughan, and starring Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, and Sarah Paulson.

Among John’s commercial credits are adverts for Formula 1, and Tesco’s 2013 Christmas campaign from agency W+K.

“John’s features, commercials, and theatre productions are all imbued with a sense of craft and nuance,” comments Kai Hsiung, RSA UK Managing Director. “He is a director we’ve long admired, and we’re really looking forward to exploring new narrative and commercial opportunities together.”
