Claire Oakley's debut feature 'Make Up' was released in the UK by Curzon Artificial Eye in July 2020. The Telegraph gave it five stars and announced it as 'the British film of 2020 so far' and 'the arrival of an exciting new talent'. The film stars Bafta-winner Molly Windsor (BBC's 'Three Girls') and was produced by Quiddity Films and iFeatures with the support of the BFI, BBC Films and Creative England. The film screened at BFI London, SXSW and Rotterdam and continues to play at festivals worldwide.


Claire's four short films have played at more than 50 festivals worldwide and have picked up several prizes internationally. She has been commissioned by the Wellcome Trust, Film London, Universal Music and the photographer Rankin. Her previous work also includes an essay film shot entirely underwater, which she produced.

Claire was chosen as a Screen Star of Tomorrow, 2019 and is a graduate of Torino Film Lab, BFI Network, EIFF Talent Lab and iFeatures. In 2014 she co-founded Cinesisters a peer-to-peer mentoring group for female directors. She is currently developing several feature films and a TV series.
