Jan Fran

Jan Fran is a documentary maker and TV presenter.

She hosts The Feed on SBSVICELAND where she makes the news funny. Jan writes, directs and produces everything from long form documentaries to sketch comedy segments for the show.

Jan Fran has shot and produced stories from all over the world for SBS World News and Dateline, often travelling solo. She was nominated for a Young Walkley award for a three-part series she shot on women in Uganda. She is one of a handful of Australian journalists who was allowed into Nauru to cover the re-opening of Australia’s offshore detention centre.

Jan Fran hosted Tropfest, the world’s largest short film festival, in 2014 and 2015 and is a regular commentator on panel shows including The Drum and ABC News Breakfast.

Jan has lived in Lebanon, France, Bangladesh and Uganda and speaks three languages – most of them terribly. She’s been nominated for several awards but in what she describes as an “utter travesty” has won none.

Jan is an ambassador for Plan International.
