Julietta Boscolo tells stories that reveal the original in the overlooked. And inspire audiences to make emotional discoveries about the world and about themselves.
Julietta’s currently attached to direct a feature starring Viola Davis and written by Kaylon Hunt with JuVee Productions. She is the set-up Director on The PM’s Daughter (working title) with Freemantle Media and the ABC which will go into production later this year. She has also directed an episode of primetime hit drama, Doctor Doctor. In 2019, Julietta’s feature The Sound of Light was one of only nine international projects invited to attend the Venice International Film Festival’s Biennale College – Cinema development workshop. The film was inspired by Boscolo’s experiences growing up: attending an exclusive girls school on a scholarship while often her family didn’t have a home. Because of her upbringing, she’s determined to direct projects full of humour and light.
Julietta won the Emerging Filmmaker Award at Melbourne International Film Festival for Let’s See How Fast This Baby Will Go (as first heard on This American Life) as well as the ATOM Award for Best Short Fiction. Funded by Screen Australia, the film was preselected for Cannes Critics Week as well as the main competition in Cannes and featured in the Emerging Filmmakers Showcase. It has screened internationally at festivals including Palm Springs.
Julietta was one of nine directors worldwide invited to the Directors Lab at Binger Filmlab in Amsterdam for her feature project, Catching Sight. The screenplay was also shortlisted for the Sundance International Screenwriters Lab and placed in the top 15% of the Academy Nicholl’s.
In addition, her television project, The Bigger Woman, which she created with Goran Stolevski, was shortlisted for the Sundance | YouTube New Voices Lab.
Julietta won an Australian Directors Guild Award for Sam’s Gold which was awarded Screen New South Wale’s Generator Fund. Sam’s Gold was one of a handful of films to screen on ABC’s The Screening Room.
She was selected for a mentorship with acclaimed director Jamie Babbit through the Australians in Film Mentor LA program and received the Australian Directors Guild Open Fellowship.
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 inaugural Edinburgh International Film Festival’s Talent Lab.
