Koby Adom

In 2018 Koby saw his BAFTA longlisted short HAIRCUT win the Film London Calling Plus Award for Best Film- as chosen by David Yates- before he went on to become a Screen Star of Tomorrow. He was also made a Broadcast Hot Shot in 2019.

In the same year he received the John Brabourne Award for which he was awarded funding towards the development of his first feature, SE28. He then went on to shadow on Netflix’s TOP BOY and, before the year was out, he was chosen to direct the second half of the BBC series NOUGHTS AND CROSSES based on the hit Malorie Blackman novel.

Koby is now developing his debut feature HAIRCUT with Film4 and producer Joy Gharoro-Akpojotor as well as developing another feature film, SE28, with DBK Studios, which he owns.
