About Rich Ward

Rich Ward is a graphic designer practising since the 1980s as a creative director and brand consultant, working with national and global brands across commercial, not-for-profit and education. In 2012, following work on the London 2012 Olympic brand, Rich founded RAW Brothers with his brother Andy. They went on to create brand stories for the British Film Institute, LKQ, MG Motors, Invesco, CarTrawler, Eternal Wall, EA, Courage Yard, Love 146, and British Airways, to name a few.

Rich has lived in Ealing since the 1980s. In 2016, Rich returned to his roots, creating in paint, spoken word and storytelling, exploring what it is to be human, both spiritual and physical, drawing on his Christian contemplative faith. Seeking opportunities to explore what it is to make human connections, Rich was one of the founding partners of Go Human, a social enterprise born out of a response to work culture in COVID-19.

About Annemarie Flanagan

Annemarie Flanagan has worked in journalism and media for over thirty years. She was a news reporter for Piccadilly Radio in Manchester and BRMB in Birmingham before moving to BBC Radio WM. She became a Senior Broadcast Journalist for BBC News 24 before going freelance.

Five years ago, she co-founded the Ealing Film Festival, created by film-loving residents during the pandemic, with the first edition in 2020 held online. Since then, it has grown, seeing a period of expansion in cinemas in Ealing from zero to three: Ealing Project, ActOne and Ealing Picturehouse. Each year, the festival attracts hundreds of entries of short films from worldwide, a variety of genres, including horror, sci-fi, drama, comedy, experimental, animation and more. The selected ones are screened during the festival at various venues, including Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery. The 2024 edition in November will be the fifth festival, with dates to be announced later in the year.
