Jeff Cole

Jeff Cole (aka Upekshapriya) is a Buddhist and a gay man living in Manchester. He started filmmaking when he was 22 in the Lesbian and Gay Youth Video Project, and with about 25 others made Framed Youth — the revenge of the teenage perverts. Some of the group then formed a lesbian and gay film/video/photography co-op called Converse Pictures, which supported the making of All Out! Dancing in Dulais: Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners by LGSM. After a few years he went to filmschool to learn about the theory and practice of filmmaking where he made Two Men and The Truth Game (which travelled the world to over 23 film festivals). After college he worked independently until he joined Clear Vision — producing audio-visual resources exploring Buddhism.
