'Matthew's classwork has been of an excellent standard this term, reaching Level 2 in both Reading and Maths, and yet his progress is being hindered by his constant chatter with those around him. Having started the year extremely positively, he has become increasingly less focused on his work and more and more preoccupied with playtime.'

Matt Houghton is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. His films experiment in particular with form, often treading the line between fact and fiction. His most recent short film, Earth To Cop is an eyewitness portrait of climate change and played at the COP26 opening ceremony in front of 140 world leaders. His previous short Landline won the 2018 Grierson Award for Best Documentary Short and his first short Dear Araucaria, made in partnership with the Guardian, won the Audience Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2015. The following year, Matt released two more shorts, Four Weddings, his second film made with the Guardian, and Hands Up, Chin Down which had its world premiere at Sheffield Doc/ Fest 2018. Matt’s latest film, This Is Endometriosis is an intimate, self-documented portrait of a photographer living with endometriosis, and due for release this year. Named as both a Film London Lodestar and a member of Berlinale Talents 2020, Matt is a founding member of Fee Fie Foe, the team behind Notes On Blindness and The Real Charlie Chaplin. Matt is currently developing his debut feature With A Gun And A Radio.
