In 2018 Sorcha was named as one of six LGBT filmmakers to be given mentorship in partnership with BAFTA. She is currently being mentored by Olivier Kaempfer of Parkville Pictures. Later this year, Sorcha will be taking part in the 2018 DepicT! Jury as part of Encounters Film Festival on behalf of BAFTA. Sorcha is building her feature slate working with writer/directors including Stella Scott & Sarah Clift as well as developing a new short documentary with director Jade Jackman in conjunction with Lush Films.
