Jane Harris is a psychotherapist and filmmaker. In the early 1980s, she studied film and worked in promoting films made by women until starting to train as a psychotherapist in 1988. Alongside her husband and fellow filmmaker, Jimmy Edmonds, Jane co-founded and runs The Good Grief Project. This was created to share their experience of grief and to help others to find an active and creative response to the expression of their grief through photography, film, creative writing and their Active Grief Retreats.

Jane and Jimmy have produced films for the charity sector, including Gerry’s Legacy for Alzheimer’s Society in 2013, and Say Their Name, for The Compassionate Friends in 2014. In 2018 they co-directed the award-winning feature documentary, A Love That Never Dies.
