Hannah Berry George is an award-winning writer and director with a soft-spot for comedy. Previously dabbling in stand-up, sketch and improv, Hannah kickstarted her directorial career with an ADCAN* Award in 2018 for her first ever commercial and has since collaborated with stand-up guru Katherine Ryan, alongside other household names including Priyanka Chopra Jones, Awkwafina, and Fern Brady.
However, Hannah’s directorial career is not restricted to purely comedy. With a background in journalism, she prides herself on being naturally inquisitive, keen to challenge personal and societal biases through her work in a way that feels informative and inclusive. She is particularly drawn to exploring pertinent themes such as mental health, female empowerment and family within her directorial work, areas of expertise that she has previously touched upon in journalism.
Recently, Hannah has looked at gender equality in her work for the British Army, the class pay gap for the Social Mobility Foundation and shone a light on endometriosis for Bodyform. Other work has featured on NOWNESS, The Evening Standard, and Funny or Die, alongside having been screened by the BFI and other international festivals.
During the spring of 2023, a debut docuseries that Hannah wrote, directed and co-created is airing in the Middle East. It was commissioned by MBC for Shahid, and explores the careers of some extraordinary female artists on the Saudi music scene in a highly creative, multimedia style.
