Abby Harri is a BIFA-nominated casting director, director, non-actor acting coach, and casting scout. She was recently named a 25 New Face of Independent Film in Filmmaker Magazine. She specializes in non-traditional casting and finding new talent on films such as Jane Schoenbrun's We’re All Going to the World’s Fair (Sundance 2021), Anna Cobb's feature debut; Savanah Leaf's Earth Mama (A24, Sundance 2023) with newcomer Tia Nomore; Riley Keough and Gina Gammell's War Pony (Cannes Camera d'Or, 2022); the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems; Seasons 1 and 2 of HBO’s Euphoria; Jane Schoenbrun's upcoming feature I Saw the TV Glow (A24, Sundance 2024); Pulitzer-Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker's film debut Janet Planet (produced by Academy-Award-winner Dan Janvey, BBC Films, and A24); and Zia Anger's feature film debut (post-production, MUBI) based on her critically acclaimed performance My First Film.

Abby's work is often labor intensive, at times uncovering talent who never thought of themselves as actors. It can include extensive research into specific communities - whether within a certain subculture, community, geographical area, or otherwise. This includes fiction film, documentary, TV, advertising, fashion, and new media.

Her first short as a director, Side Hustle, has been called an “intoxicating debut,” and "a showcase for Harri’s incredible eye for talent. . . a nuanced look at the identity-shifting and psychological strategies that go into sugar baby/daddy relationships'' (Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine).
