A talent swiftly rising, Lucy is making a name for herself both in New Zealand and Australia.

Recently winning Best Direction for her short An Act of Love at the Australian Directors’ Guild Awards in 2018, Knox's film premiered at Sydney Film Festival, where it received Special Mention for Best Short Screenplay. 

The film was also recently picked up for distribution by the Criterion Collection.

Knox has worked in both documentary and narrative forms; lending a unique quality to her narrative work, focusing on authentic performances in visually striking worlds.

 

Last Man Standing, directed by Knox and frequent collaborator W.A.M. Bleakley, a nostalgia evoking documentary was a Tropfest finalist in 2018, and played at the UK’s leading documentary festival Sheffield DocFest.

 

Now couldn’t be a better time to get involved in commercials, with Knox stating;

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work on projects with the support of such a stable as lit as Curious” says Knox.

 

Kate Roydhouse, Managing Director and Executive Producer of Curious Film says: “It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Lucy, with some really cool projects already underway. It’s exciting to bring yet another super talented director into the fold.”

 

Knox will be working independently, as well as part of the directing duo with W.A.M. Bleakley.
