Benedict Webb is a British filmmaker and director-writer from South East England, passionate about creating sensitive, heartfelt short films. Benedict's shorts have been selected for BAFTA & BIFA qualifying festivals such as Encounters Film Festival.
Aged 18, Benedict wrote and directed his first film 'Next Week' starring Mick Ford (Scum) for Channel 4 Random Acts, a short about a grandad struggling with Alzheimer's. His next film 'Soft' was called an 'impressive subtle and sombre meditation on masculinity' by UK Film Review. Other shorts include 'Company of Four', and 'Toast' starring Roger Sloman (Nuts' In May) which was nominated for best screenplay at the National Youth Film Awards.
In 2022, Benedict won the Depict Royal Photographic Society Award at the BAFTA Qualifying Encounters Film Festival for his film ‘wherever, next’.
