Greg Hall (born 30 June 1980 in London, England) is a British film director, producer, cinematographer and screenwriter. He is active with the film-making collective Broke But Making Films.
The Plague (2004) — made when he was a 22-year-old with a budget of just £3,500 — was Hall's feature debut, winning him the inaugural Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award at the 10th Sarajevo Film Festival. He went on to collaborate with composer Steve Martland on follow-up feature Kapital (2007). Hall also wrote the screenplays for both of these films and was cinematographer for short film The Housewife (2005), which starred Alison Steadman.
More recently he created the film Communion, starring Paul Martin, about a vicar on the run who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young punk traveler. A road journey of substance and fruitful rewards, actor Paul Martin stars in this highly acclaimed and beautifully made film. His most recent work has been as director of heist thriller Dangerous Mind of a Hooligan, and he has plans to adapt Ian Bone's autobiographical book Bash The Rich.
