WHAT WE SAY
Jessica is a well-established producer in the shorts arena and is looking to make the move into features. She has produced 6 compelling short films with the collective, ‘Kangaroo Films’ and is currently developing a slate of projects with her production company, Flumeri Films who were able to raise a total of over £100K in one year (with three successful BFI Network submissions).
When working with her on her BFI NETWORK short Hard to Reach it was apparent that she is a savvy and proficient producer who is able to deliver. Three of her short films are currently on the festival circuit: One Like Him is BAFTA/BIFA qualifying; Hard to Reach is BAFTA/BIFA/Oscar/Canadian Screen Guild Award qualifying; and Sugar Babies is BIFA qualifying.
After working for writer/director Sally Potter for 5 years, Jessica Palmarozza started her own production company, Flumeri Films in 2021. Since then, Jessica has completed 5 shorts which have screened at 50 festivals around the world including LFF, Aesthetica, Frameline, Outfest, Leeds and the Pan African Film Fest. All of the films are BAFTA, BIFA or Oscar qualifying. Her films have won awards including Best LGBTQI+ Film (NEIFF), Jury Award (Tels Quels), Best Actor (Little Wing), Best Editing (Fastnet), Best Cinematography (Wolverhampton) and Best UK Short (Nottingham).
Since launching Flumeri Films, Jessica has raised over £100K in financing, receiving funding from the BFI Network three times (Film Hub North, NI Screen and Film London). She specialises in queer storytelling, with a particular fascination for the surreal. She has a feature in early development in collaboration with Caitlin McLeod from her shorts slate.
