Scifi Wales is happy to announce that award-winning filmmaker, actress and model Emma Dark will be appearing at Scifi Wales this September. Emma specialises in the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres. Her career began with modelling in 2008 and she quickly made a name for herself working with highly respected independent boutique designers and creative photographers on the alternative scene in London and beyond.
In 2010 she modelled for the incredibly popular Hell Bunny and Spin Doctor labels, and in 2011 went on to be published in Natasha Scharf's book Worldwide Gothic: A Chronicle of a Tribe. In 2012 she featured as Miss April and July in Jason Juta's annual fantasy calendar and won World Goth Day's Best Model, which was covered by Cosmopolitan and various other media machines.
2014 saw her moving forward in her film career, taking part as an official judge at the prestigious British Horror Film Festival, and producing/directing horror fan short Island of the Blind Dead (2015) with fellow filmmaker Merlyn Roberts. As 2014 drew to a close Emma embarked on her greatest challenge to date, her first self-produced and directed, horror/action short Seize the Night (2015). In 2015 Emma's work on 'Seize the Night' went on to win her the notable MMBF Rising Star award at Ireland's The Yellow Fever Independent Film Festival.
2016 is set to be another busy year for Emma. As well as continuing to show 'Seize the Night' at festivals and preparing the film for general release, Emma is due to play the lead role of Laura Kinsey in dark fantasy short 'The Morning Star Preserves Company' by Abandonhope Films.
