Jeff Nichols

Born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas, Jeff has been described by frequent collaborator Michael Shannon as a “smart redneck, which is a rarefied breed”. A teenage punk rock drummer turned auteur filmmaker, Jeff is one of America’s most exciting new voices working in film today.

His first film, Shotgun Stories garnered several festival awards including the FIPRESCI International Jury Prize at the 2007 Viennale. His next, Take Shelter opened to great critical acclaim and won, amongst other awards, the SACD Award for Best Feature at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. The film was also nominated for five 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards including Best Director.

Mud, Nichols’ third film premiered in main competition at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and had its North American premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was awarded the prestigious Robert Altman Award for the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards. His most recent feature, Loving, was ‘In Competition’ at last year’s Cannes Film Festival and his leading lady, Ruth Negga was nominated for an Oscar for her performance. Jeff directed his first commercial film project for Procter & Gamble last year, ‘Strong’ which was incredibly well received and has garnered nearly 30 million YouTube views to date.
