Rebecca Day – Producer

Rebecca began her career as a producer with the Scottish Documentary Institute (SDI) in 2008. There, she produced her first short documentary, Peter in Radioland, which was nominated for seven awards, including a European Academy Award. She also developed several features and worked on innovative outreach and audience engagement campaigns for SDI, most notably the successful campaign around award-winning documentary, I Am Breathing and Seven Songs for a Long Life.

Now working freelance, she is producing two feature documentaries: Becoming Animal, a Scottish/Swiss co-production directed by Emma Davie and Peter Mettler, due to be released in 2018, and Silent Men with Duncan Cowles, an award-winning short filmmaker and recipient of the BFI Raw Talent Award.

In addition to producing documentaries, she is also completing a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy. She has a particular interest in films that focus on the human condition and is researching and developing ideas on therapeutic practice in film.
