Finola Dwyer

Finola Dwyer began her career as an editor at the National Film Unit. After cutting Country Calendar and feature film Trial Run, Larry Parr encouraged her to become a producer. Three movies and a number of television programmes later, Dwyer began her producing career anew in London in the early 90s, where her work stretches from acclaimed Beatles feature Backbeat to the Oscar-nominated An Education.

I always say I fell into producing but I loved it, even though it was a baptism by fire.
