Jacqui Fifer

Director, The Portal

Jacqui is a passionate filmmaker and writer who is committed to film, story and music as tools to shift consciousness. Fascinated with human development, she understands the importance of meeting evolutionary challenges and loves inspiring people to move from their heads to their hearts. Following an international career as a successful DJ, Jacqui embarked on an extensive career in the film industry, which has taken her from line producing to directing, leading teams from development through to post and visual effects on several feature films.

Known for her pursuit of authenticity and fearlessness in the face of big visions, Jacqui produced the multi-award-winning dramatic feature, Concealed (2017) and was a key player in such films as Better Watch Out (2016), The Osiris Child (2016) and Infini (2015). While based in Spain, she co-directed the 2012 and 2013 “Dona i Cinema” (Women and Film) festival in Spain. For Jacqui, life is work is joy is life—there is no separation, and she brings this philosophy of seamlessness and union to everything she does. What emerges is a unique marrying of sound, words, pictures and heart that moves the soul. The Portal is her first feature documentary.
