Since 2012, Dionne Edwards and Georgia Goggin have made five shorts together, including the award-winning comedy Hi, Miss! which has screened at festivals around the world. Their most recent film, We Love Moses, was supported by Film London, Signature Pictures and Sugar Films Lab. It premiered at the BFI London Film Festival in October 2016 and won the Brief Encounters: British Award in 2017. It has gone on to screen at over fifty festivals worldwide, picking up nine awards. It has been licensed for television by Cine+, Canal+ and HBO. They are developing their debut feature film with the BFI.
