Delyth Thomas is a Bafta nominated film and television director based in the UK. She has worked with the major UK broadcasters, many independent companies, and directed award winning co-productions with Canada, ZDF and Netflix. Alongside directing drama, she has been actively involved with Directors UK over the last decade, both on the board and campaigning on important issues.
A passionate advocate for gender and ethnic equality in the industry, and for the promotion and protection of directors copyright both in the UK and globally, she has been on the ExCo of Writers and Directors Worldwide for the last 4 years and is keen to consolidate her experience and stand for another term. The changing landscape of film and television production/distribution means that, more than ever, directors and writers must come together from all over the world to protect, promote and lobby for their creative rights.
