Tom Dexter's picture


I'm a 3rd year student at Cardiff University studying International Business Management. I am the current president of Diff Films, the film production branch of Cardiff University's Film Society based at the student's union as well as having previously worked for and run Cardiff Union TV.

In a film capacity I am an alumni of the 2014 BFI Film Academy Craft Residential at the National Film & Television School where I received industry training in production from industry professionals such as Lee Thomas, Michelle Eastwood, Colin Vaines, Lenny Henry and Mike Newell. I have also received runner training from the Production Guild at the Wales Millennium Centre.

In 2014 I was also a participant in the Looking China Youth Short Video Project in Dalian China where Beijing Normal University, Cardiff University and other academic partners funded myself and five other student filmmakers from the UK to go to China to shoot a short documentary on Chinese culture.

I have also made a number of fictional short films in the UK which have been financed through crowdfunding and have worked as a runner on student films at the National Film & Television School and an independently produced TV pilot teaser.

This year I am also on the selection committee of the Cardiff Independent Film Festival.
