Pinny writes about herself:
“I was raised in Hackney and now at 42, I am still proud to call it my home. Hackney has changed completely in the last decade, nevertheless it has maintained a unique character that has continued to allow diversity and creativity to flourish. I am an award winning filmmaker who has delivered numerous filmmaking projects locally, including the Hi8us South ‘Poplar Film School’ and for Creative Partnerships London East.
I am currently a course leader at Central Film School on Brick Lane.
In 2015, I directed ‘Thank You Women’ for The Guardian with women from my local Clapton community for International Women’s Day.
Between 2014-2018 I was Contributing Director on Grierson Award nominated ‘The Street’ by Zed Nelson. The film tells the story of the rapid gentrification of Hoxton Street. Also with Zed, I co-directed ‘The Marshes’ as part of our time as ‘Filmmakers in Residence’ for the Lea Valley Park Authority.
My latest East London based film project is fiction feature film ‘Hear My Voice’.
