“Director Neil Mcenery-West….…Wields his camera like a seasoned auteur”
Total Film 2015

Neil is an award winning director whose intelligent, cinematic, and emotionally rich films have received widespread critical acclaim. His short film UNDERTOW was praised by The Guardian’s film critic Peter Bradshaw as having “polish, and inhabiting the short-film space with panache”. In 2015 his debut feature film CONTAINMENT received an extended UK theatrical release and attracted several 5* reviews. Sight & Sound wrote “The real power of Containment lies in Mcenery-West’s direction, which demonstrates a visual wisdom that’s truly rare in a first-time director.”
