Grant Lahood

Director

Grant Lahood made his name with a trio of short films featuring speedy snails, troublesome mice and squabbling animal activists. After taking  The Singing Trophy and Lemming Aid to success at the Cannes Film Festival, Lahood has gone on to direct documentaries, commercials and two feature films — one of which (Kombi Nation) features an all human cast.

To get into Cannes was great, but then I realised that people like Clint Eastwood are on the jury. We shot Lemming Aid cheaply on a clifftop in Titahi Bay in three days of wind. I just never dreamed we’d be here with it. Grant Lahood on getting his short film Lemming Aid into the Cannes Film Festival, The Listener, 11 June 1994, page 44
