Ben Aston


Ben is a London born filmmaker, raised in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Australia and Bath. After graduating with a BA in Philosophy from Kings College London, he spent a year setting up a production house with friends, creating short films, music video and ads for political organisations resulting in a televised gig that ended up paying for his first term at the London Film School. His mid-course film ‘Dinner and a Movie’ was officially selected for the Palm Springs Shortfest 2013, the London Short Film Festival 2013 and the Edinburgh Film Festival 2013 which named him a ‘British director of tomorrow’. His short ‘Russian Roulette’ recently won the jury prize for the Sundance London short film competition.
