Rumley has shot films in Europe, USA and South America and worked as both a director for hire as well as on his own scripts.
His films have been distributed worldwide and played at festivals as varied as Toronto, SXSW, Rotterdam, Sarajevo, Transilvania, Buenos Aires and London. During this period, he has won over 50 prizes and Best Film awards at such esteemed festivals as Sitges, Fantasia and Fantasticfest.
Empire Magazine called him ‘one of the most important and intelligent British directors working today’ whilst Screen International described him as ‘one of the great British cinematic outsiders, a gifted director with the know-how to puncture conventions.’
Swapping from drama, to thriller to horror and working between London and Los Angeles, he remains one of the UK’s most enduring and prolific independent directors.
