Jacqueline Wright is an English director of film, TV and music promos.

Wright's short films include David the Great, a comedic homage to magician David Blaine; Out of Water, which was funded by the UK Film Council; and Stiffy, a comedy with a necrophiliac theme which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2005 and was shortlisted for the BBC New Filmmaker's Award in 2006.[1]

Several of Wright's short films have been collaborations with writer and actress Alice Lowe. They also worked together on Lowe's 2005 Edinburgh Fringe stage show MoonJourney, a comedic rock-opera which spoofed Kate Bush, on which Wright worked as Associate Director. In 2010 they founded Jackal Films, making a short film each month of that year.[2]

Her music videos include promos for Lowe's songs Sticks and Balls and Earth Birth, as well the Raindance/Tiscali Award-winning promo for The Shakes's single Liberty Jones.
