Elizabeth Dixon co-wrote and co-directed Whirlpool, a short on Helen Keller, with Five Fifty Five founder and CEO, Kate Baxter. Going from script to screen in just about a month, Whirlpool went on to be Oscar qualifying, and did exceptionally well on the film festival circuits.
Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Dixon grew up in Liverpool, walking along tall walls and cartwheeling in front of oncoming cars. Since then she has matured her aptitude for adrenaline and redirected it into storytelling and filmmaking becoming an award winning screenwriter and director with experience devising and directing performances across Britain and Europe including film, theatre, site-specific, festivals and community commissions. As a working writer, Elizabeth co-wrote and -directed Whirlpool, with her second short and first narrative feature recently greenlit - both filming in 2020. Elizabeth holds a BA in Theatre Arts and qualifications in photography, puppetry, and visual theatre forms from The Institut Del Teatre, Barcelona. This year she has been welcomed into the BFI network of working class film makers.
