Helen Hadfield

Founder & Exec Producer, Snapper Films - London

Best New


After over 25 years in the business, setting up, running and producing  at three successful production companies, Helen recently thought that it was a good time to do it again.  The need for change was difficult to ignore so along with director Joanna Bailey, she set up Snapper Films, a deliberately small, ambitious production boutique with an instinct for fearless filmmaking and a careless disregard for boundaries. The best advertising touches people, it makes you feel something  and that is the kind of work she wants to make. The time had come to be brave and  own the future she wanted. 

Helen’s interest is in developing  talent that can make a difference, talent that can rise to the challenges of today’s climate and make interesting, engaging content that strikes a chord. 

She is thrilled to be asked to  judge the new blood section at Kinsale , that’s what she believes in , we want to enable it to grow and flourish and develop because that is the investment we need to make to create the vibrant future we want.
