About Us

We're Hillary and Anna - together The Shakespeare Sisters - a film making duo based in London. We've written, directed and co-produced two feature films: Soundtrack to Sixteen (2020) and Much Ado (in post-production). Soundtrack to Sixteen premiered at the London Independent Film Festival and was recently listed in HeyUGuys as one of the most underrated films of 2020.

Hillary Shakespeare

I started my career in science, completing an undergrad in Physics at Imperial College, then a masters in Computer Science at Oxford before I moved to the Oxford Robotics Institute in 2015. I left robotics to found Shakespeare Sisters with Anna in 2017. We have since produced two feature films and are now taking on a slate of new projects including The Unreason (Chris Reading) and Faulty Roots (Ella Greenwood) as well as developing our own scripts for film and TV.

Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare

After I graduated from Oxford University in 2017 where I was studying German literature, Hillary and I started Shakespeare Sisters and completed our first feature film 'Soundtrack to Sixteen' which we co-produced with the more experienced Ben Jacques (Hatton Garden Job, Accident Man). After it's release in the UK earlier this year the film has been to festivals around the world including Schlingel International Film Festival this October where we were proud to pick up the festival's audience award. We are now in development on several projects and co-productions including work with A+E Studios, Broken Flames Productions and Candr Pictures.
