Storm Saulter is a filmmaker and visual artist from Negril, Jamaica, on a mission to create universal stories wrapped in the complex social and cultural dynamics of the Caribbean. Storm’s award winning debut film BETTER MUS’ COME was hailed by critics as signaling a fresh new movement of independent filmmaking throughout the region. The film secured distribution with Ava Duvernay’s ARRAY Studios, which lead to its streaming debut on NETFLIX North America. BBCTWO streamed the film in the United Kingdom.

On the heels of his breakout film, Saulter co-founded the New Caribbean Cinema collective, a group of emerging Caribbean auteurs determined to get their stories on the big screen by any means necessary. The group used community filmmaking tactics to create 7 groundbreaking short films, by different directors, with virtually no budget. Those shorts were combined into one feature length anthology film titled “Ring Di Alarm!”, which premiered at the British Film Institute in London.

Storm wrote and directed his 2nd feature film SPRINTER which swept the 2018 American Black Film Festival winning “Best Director”, “Best Narrative Feature” and the “Audience Award”. The film went on to win several best-of-festival awards including “Best Narrative Feature” at the 2019 Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, and the “Audience Award” at the 2019 BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia. SPRINTER is Executive Produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. It is currently streaming on NETFLIX in the USA, Canada, and the Caribbean. It is also streaming in the United Kingdom on SKY CINEMA, and in over 40 countries across the African continent with MULTICHOICE GROUP. Storm is represented for film & television by CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY (CAA) in Los Angeles, California.
