Serving 35 years in the Australian screen industry, Maslin’s many feature credits include Road To Nhill, Japanese Story and The Dressmaker directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse which went on to become one of Australia’s all time highest-grossing films and recipient of five AACTA Awards.
Her most recent documentary Jill Bilcock – The Art of Editing received the Greater Union Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2016 Adelaide Film Festival and was nominated for Best Feature Documentary in the 2018 AACTA Awards.
“I am thrilled and humbled to be honoured in this way,” said Sue Maslin, President of the Natalie Miller Fellowship. “My contribution has been in partnership with so many brilliant and creative people and it means a lot if our work has made a positive difference to the Australian screen industry and in particular, women.”
Maslin’s commitment to engaging and empowering audiences with ideas that matter saw her establish production and distribution company, Film Art Media, with Daryl Dellora in 2008. Outside of the office Maslin is a patron of Women In Film and Television (Victoria) and was inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in 2018 and continues to serve as inaugural President of the Natalie Miller Fellowship, an organisation dedicated to inspiring leadership and increasing the participation of women in the screen industry.
