Officially formed in 2017 by screenwriter Karla Williams and director Rebecca Coley, MsMono is an award-winning production company. We tell bold, original and ambitious female centred stories and we strive to increase female representation in the film and TV Industry.
Our short film Pretty Bitch won the Van D’or Award in 2013 for Best Screenplay and was nominated in four other categories including Best Film, Best Actress, Best Drama and Best Director. It has been screened at festivals internationally including London Short Film Festival; BFI Future Film Festival; Bornshorts Festival, Denmark; Teen International Film Festival, Turkey; British Shorts Film Festival, Berlin and the Annual Vancouver International Woman in Film Festival.
Our music video, You for Independent Artist Sharlene-Monique (also a member of the Kingdom Choir) has been viewed on YouTube nearly 30,000 times and won Best Female Solo, Best Inspirational and Music Video of the Year at the 2017 Jump Music Video Awards. It was also screened at the Women of the Lens Festival.
Our next project, Celibate, is a TV Comedy series featuring the award-winning stand up comic and actress Thanyia Moore. The comedy has been described by audiences as ‘unique, brilliant, funny and bold’ and is currently in the development stage.
In January 2019 MsMono made the commitment that all productions will be 50% female.
