Luisa Martiri is a Brisbane-based filmmaker who graduated from the Queensland University of Technology in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Film, TV and New Media Production. After graduating, Luisa worked as Producer's Assistant for Brisbane based production company Hoodlum and has since worked as a freelance Producer’s Assistant in the television industry.
In 2020, Luisa produced and directed the short film Pools, alongside writer Alex Philp, marking their second film collaboration thus far. The short follows a young woman who takes a road trip to Brisbane to terminate her pregnancy alongside her reluctant mother. Pools was an official selection at Flickerfest International Short Film Festival 2021 and had its world premiere in Bondi, Sydney in January 2021. Since then, Pools has screened in Brisbane and the Gold Coast as part of Flickerfest’s national tour and Queensland filmmaker showcase. Pools will continue to complete its festival circuit throughout 2021.
Her debut short film Milk, which she produced and directed and co-wrote alongside Alex Philp, explores the intimacy of female friendships as a young woman learns to navigate her closest relationships amidst the Brisbane summer heat. Milk was an official selection at the Sydney Indie Film Festival and screened at Melbourne Lift-Off Film Festival Online in 2018.
Luisa is incredibly passionate about showcasing female stories on screen, which is reflected in her work to date. She has completed various courses in filmmaking including Girls on Film: Creating Strong Female Characters at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Sydney and an International Professional Certificate Program in Film and Television at the University of California in Los Angeles.
