Lily Darragh Harty




I am a highly dedicated producer drawn to imaginative and typically high-stakes stories with unique thematic elements. My distinctive passion for identifying and attracting exceptional creative voices continues to bring me exciting and authentic projects, whatever the size.


Through both my work in short-form media and my tenure as a Production Manager, Health & Safety with major studios such as ABC, FX, and MGM, I've gained a comprehensive understanding of production logistics on a major scale. This expertise has allowed me to sharpen my skills and excel as a freelance producer, simultaneously informing ambitious visions for the feature film projects I have in development and other narrative work with my production company, Purple Cactus Productions (co-owned with Sara Eklund and Maria Prieto).

Past projects have garnered widespread acclaim and recognition on the international festival circuit, with showings and awards across the globe. The gothic family horror "Kin" (co-producer), directed by Sarah Gross, was an official selection at 14 festivals, including Fantasia Film Festival and Seattle International Film Festival, and took home 8 awards. The ambitious ballet film "Fallen Prince," was honored with the "Against All Odds" award at NFFTY. "Bolero" (2018), on which I associate produced, was a finalist at the prestigious Student Academy Awards.

My portfolio of branded projects includes collaborations with clients such as Inkitt, Porsche Design, Telus, Westbank, Goh Ballet, Original Stitch, Oblong, Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, and more. I am also passionate about creating close partnerships with exceptional directors in the commercial space, whose unique perspectives and styles bring success to their projects.
