Megan K. Fox is the award-winning Irish Writer/Director of short films Slow Down (2015), GIRL (2016), Calling Home (2017) and The Shift (2018). She graduated with a Directing MA from the Met Film School in 2015 and has collected over a dozen awards for her work since.
Slow Down won the Colchester Film Festival's '60 Hour Film Challenge' from over 1.5K entries worldwide and saw Megan nominated for Best New Irish Director at the Kinsale Shark Awards in 2016. Other screenings for Slow Down included London Short Film Festival and BFI Future Film Festival.
GIRL enjoyed a successful festival run with over 20 screenings, 8 awards and 4 nominations. Highlights included being screened alongside the Basquiat exhibition at the Barbican Centre, winning the WFTV Lifetime Shorts Competition and Best Director Under 25 at BAFTA qualifying Underwire Festival. GIRL was a Shooting People Film of the Month winner, judged by director Alma Ha’rel in January 2017.
Calling Home was funded through the Reel Homes Competition by Inside Housing last year, to commemorate 50 years since Ken Loach's seminal film Cathy Come Home first aired. The film earned Megan a nomination for the Young Directors Award Ireland 2018, and premiered at BAFTA qualifying Aesthetica Film Festival.
Megan directed her first comedy, The Shift, last year. It was awarded funding through the Film in Cork Script Award 2018 and premiered at Cork Film Festival where it began it's festival journey by winning the title of Best Cork Short. Upcoming projects include Cailín Álainn, a tender bilingual coming-of-age film about a transgender teen, which secured the inaugural Kerry Film Bursary 2018.
Last year she was selected for the highly competitive New Directors Multi-Camera Training programme for continuing drama, an initiative of RTÉ and Screen Skills Ireland. Through the scheme Megan earned her first TV credits for directing episodes of long running Irish soap Fair City, and is now fully trained in multi-camera directing for studio.
