Tim
Mielants

Director for Film and Television 

Tim completed his first feature film last year, De Patrick, which he wrote and directed. Starring Jermaine Clement, the film premiered at the 54th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and won the award for Best Director (“Mielants shows a real flair for combining comedy and tragedy” – Hollywood Reporter). The film recently picked up 7 awards at the Ensor Flemish Film Awards – including Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay. De Patrick won Best Film at the Magritte Awards and Tim also scooped the Best Director and Best Film awards at the Fantastic Fest Austin Film Festival.

Most recently, Tim directed an episode of Tales from the Loop, Amazon’s new genre series based on the acclaimed sci-fi art of Simon Stålenhag, starring Rebecca Hall. Tim directed two seasons of Legion, created by Noah Hawley, for FX which was described as the 'best superhero show on TV' by The Guardian. Tim also directed The Terror, AMC's 2017 thriller set in the Arctic, crime-drama The Tunnel, and all 6 episodes of the third series of Peaky Blinders.

Previously, after a series of short films where he developed his personal style, Tim Mielants joined the team of directors on Flemish Belgian series Code 37 where he directed 11 episodes. Following this he directed 10 episodes of the fantastical family series Zingaburia. The success of these programmes made him one of the highest profile young series directors in Flanders, which led to him taking the helm of the ambitious series drama series Cordon.
