Julietta Boscolo tells stories that reveal the original in the everyday. And inspire audiences to discover something new about the world and themselves.
Julietta is the winner of the 2017 Emerging Filmmaker Award at Melbourne International Film Festival for Let’s See How Fast This Baby Will Go (as featured on This American Life) and was nominated for an ADG Award for the same project. The film was funded by Screen Australia’s Hot Shots initiative and was preselected for Cannes Critics Week.
Out of a record-breaking 452 applications, Julietta’s project Sunshine was one of 45 stories to be funded through Screen Australia’s Gender Matters initiative.
Julietta graduated with a Masters in Directing from the Victorian College of the Arts. That year, she was one of only 35 filmmakers worldwide to be invited to the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s Talent Lab and received Screen NSW’s Emerging Filmmakers Fund for Sam’s Gold. She was also one of three filmmakers nominated for an If Award for Rising Talent. Sam’s Gold was one of a handful of films to screen on ABC’s The Screening Room. According to ABCTV: ‘The Screening Room showcases the best Australian short films from emerging film makers and cutting-edge visionaries’. Julietta also won the Australian Directors Guild Award for Best Direction in a Short Film for the film.
On the feature front, Julietta was one of nine directors worldwide invited to the Directors Lab at Binger Filmlab in Amsterdam, supported by Screen Australia’s Talent Escalator.
Selected for Screen Australia’s highly competitive Directors Attachment Scheme on Playmaker Media’s Love Child, she directed a number of select scenes for the show, including the opening scenes of the two episodes she worked on, starring Miranda Tapsell and Andy Ryan.
In 2019, Julietta was selected to take part in the Hollywood Field Trip, a program in which a select group of established screen practitioners from outside the US are given the opportunity to pitch to top Hollywood executives, producers, agents and managers in LA. She is currently completing a Directors Attachment on the popular Australian drama Doctor, Doctor.
Julietta has several longform projects in development and is looking for new opportunities to discover original stories.
