Core Team

Danielle Turkov Wilson

Founder and Executive Director

Danielle’s creative passion and specialist experience in political engagement provide the binding thread so vital to TFIP’s vision and success. Before founding TFIP, she advised the European Parliament Intergroup on Freedom of Religion or Belief, liaising with the European External Action Service, and spearheaded many projects on radicalisation. This, combined with her involvement in providing a platform for women, youth, religious minorities and refugees sparked her vision to revitalise creative mediums to empower socio-political progress. Danielle's desire is to see films used as visual policy briefs, propelling emotional, lasting narratives.

Amy Shepherd

Global Impact Director

Amy leads TFIP's global strategy and every aspect of impact campaigns. She brings a wide range of legal and policy experience to TFIP, having worked in the UK, The Philippines and at the EU on justice issues spanning prisoner rights, modern slavery, free speech, freedom of religion or belief and digital rights and data privacy. Her vision is for film to creatively inspire collaborative policymaking at national, regional and international levels.
