She started her career at Rise Films, working in-house on productions including Paul Taylor’s THE ART OF POLITICAL MURDER, Dror Moreh’s THE HUMAN FACTOR and series 4 and 5 of ITV2’s highest rating comedy ever – Roman sitcom PLEBS. Florrie was an assistant producer for David Osit’s multi-award winning MAYOR; associate producer for Jed Rothstein’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN LONDONGRAD; and associate producer for GEORGE CARLIN’S AMERICAN DREAM, a two-part documentary for HBO directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio, which won the 2022 Emmy® for Outstanding Documentary. Most recently, Florrie co-produced Shaunak Sen’s ALL THAT BREATHES – the only film ever to have won both the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and Best Documentary at the Cannes Film Festival. The film received BAFTA and Oscar nominations for Best Documentary. In 2023 Florrie was selected for the National Film and Television School’s business and leadership training program, Inside Pictures.

She is passionate about bringing new audiences to documentary cinema and elevating the genre by working with and advocating for filmmakers who are taking bold and surprising artistic risks in their storytelling.
