Graham Jones (born 25 November 1973[1]) is an award-winning Irish filmmaker.

He made his first feature film How to Cheat in the Leaving Certificate in 1997 which caused controversy when it was condemned by the Junior Minister for Education Willie O'Dea. It marked the beginning of a career in which Jones would explore many difficult subjects through independent movies such as Fudge 44, The Green Marker Scare, The Randomers, Davin, The History Student and his most recent feature Nola and the Clones in 2016.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]

Variety Magazine describes him as "a very talented director".[10]
