Alice Aedy

Documentary Photographer, Co-Founder of Earthrise


Alice Aedy is a 28 year-old documentary photographer, film-maker and campaigner, whose work focuses on forced migration, environmental issues and women’s stories. Alice is the co-founder of earthrise studio, a creative studio dedicated to communicating the climate crisis, harnessing the optimism and imagination required to build the world we so urgently need. Alice spent most of 2015-19 on the front-lines of the refugee crisis, reporting from refugee camps across Europe and the Middle East. She has since travelled to the frontlines of climate change to document the human cost of the climate crisis, and recently campaigned for environmental activist groups Extinction Rebellion and the Youth Strikes for Climate.

Alice’s debut short documentary, Disconnected, had its world premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2019 and San Francisco Documentary Festival where it was nominated for Jury Prize and Audience Award. Disconnected was subsequently screened at film festivals globally and published by The Atlantic. Alice’s most recent documentary, Somalinimo, published by The Guardian, was made with a grant from the BFI/Doc Society. Alice is also the Founder of Frame of Mind, an online platform that spotlights all the different kinds of storytellers who are shaping our understanding of defining social issues. Alice’s work has been published in The Times, Vice, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, Monocle, BBC. Her work has been exhibited in London including at Somerset House.

The Guardian has featured two profiles of Alice’s work as a young photojournalist and her photo of a young Syrian refugee appeared on the publication’s front-page, which would become the most successful fundraising campaign for child refugees in The Guardian’s history. Alice’s Stella McCartney Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign video ‘A Letter to My Loved Ones’ was shared globally, including by Oprah, David Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Wildscreen are delighted to welcome Alice as a Programmer for Wildscreen's Official Selection in 2022.
