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 (2023). We have one film in post 'The Unreason' and are in development with another 'The Upside of Unrequited.' 

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 2018. Two years later Anna and I had released our first film and we haven't looked back since!


Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare

After I graduated from Oxford University in 2017 where I was studying German literature, Hillary and I started Shakespeare Sisters. We've now released two films and are focusing mainly on two new projects: 'The Unreason' starring Johnny Vegas, currently in post and 'The Upside of Unrequited' which we are adapting from the book by NTY best-selling author and Love, Simon writer Becky Albertalli. We live together with two cats, Pumpkin and Tunafish, who we also sometimes write about. 

Soundtrack to Sixteen wins the Audience Award at Schlingel International Film Festival October 2020
