An imaginative and award winning programme maker with 14 years experience, my reputation is for sensitive character led and foreign films. I am known for making visually rich and stylish films, producing and directing arts, anthropology, observational, science and history films - all with authentic human stories at their heart. I am a film judge, most recently at the Banff International Mountain Film Festival. I love working with craft crews, and also self - shoot on FS7 and C300. Edit directing credits are from 90 seconds to 90 minutes, and my work as a Development Producer has led to 3 returning series and a critically acclaimed radio documentary. Credits include 'One Strange Rock', ‘Human Planet’, ‘Artsnight’, ‘Earths Natural Wonders’, and ’What do Artists Do All Day’ Read Less

I've shot a number of films for Dina. She is a very good director, and working with her on location is always a pleasure. She aims for the highest aesthetic and narrative quality attainable and I'm proud of the work I have done with her.

She seems genuinely unflappable, is very collaborative and always maintains her calm focus in the face of the constant logistical upheaval inherent on a documentary film shoot. She is well prepared and clearly communicates her narrative goals, while being flexible enough to allow talented crew the space to do their best work.

Dina is excellent at people management and maintaining good morale, providing the framework for happy collaboration between crew members. She’s also very sensitive with contributors, allowing us to get the best from the subjects we are filming.

Simon de Glanville

I have worked closely with Dina in production. She is extremely committed and passionate about the programmes she makes. She copes with change incredibly well and has the creative vision to adapt and make unexpected situations work to her advantage in an artful and insightful way, whilst also having the gumption to stick to her guns when she feels something is right for the programme.

She is very perceptive - recognising the pressures and workload of her team and is skilled at being able to effectively manage this alongside her own editorial workload. She is clear and courteous to colleagues and contributors and is a definite leader who you know would never expect you to do anything she wouldn’t be willing to do herself.
