Jessica Palmarozza was born in London to a Dutch mother and an Italian-American father. She trained as a producer at the offices of writer / director Sally Potter for five years, before starting her own company, Flumeri Films, in 2021. Since launching, Jessica has completed five short films. Her films have played at 50 festivals including LFF, Aesthetica, Frameline 46 in San Francisco, Oufest Fusion & the Pan African Film Festival in LA. Her films have won awards including Best LGBTQI+ Film (NEIFF), the Jury Award (Tels Quels), Best Actor (Little Wing), Best First Time Director (Florence Film Awards), Best Editing (Fastnet), Best Cinematography (Wolverhampton) and Best UK Short (Nottingham). All of the films are either BIFA, BAFTA or Oscar qualifying.  

Jessica was recently named as one of the 2023 London Lodestars in the Producers category, an award scheme run by Film London. She is a member of Bafta Connect 2023. 

Since launching Flumeri, Jessica has raised over £100K in financing for her slate, receiving funding from the BFI Network three times (Film Hub North, NI Screen and Film London). She specialises in queer storytelling, with a particular fascination for the surreal. While two of the shorts were filmed in London, the other three have taken her to Birmingham, Northern Ireland, and to the Dead Sea in Jordan, resulting in great experience working with local crews. She currently has a feature in early development with director Caitlin McLeod from her shorts slate. Alongside her narrative work, Jessica is a senior producer at Gramafilm, a creative studio. 

She has BA and MA degrees in English Literature from the University of Oxford and UCL and is based in London.
