Josephine Mackerras

Multi-award-winning filmmaker Josephine grew up in Australia and China. Her first passion was acting, joining a theatre company at the age of 9. At 16, she left the southern hemisphere and lived in Jerusalem, Amsterdam, and NYC, where she studied filmmaking at NYU.

Her shorts A Sign, Modlitba, L’enfant perdu, and Diva have been selected to over 90 high profile festivals including Slamdance, Brussels, Palm Springs, Rhode Island, and Raindance. While in pre-production on a feature with an Oscar-winning producer, Josephine fell pregnant and the project went sideways. Deciding to take things into her own hands, she wrote the screenplay for Alice and embarked on a journey to bring the film to life.
