Meet the Team
Jude Kalman is an independent film maker from the Gold Coast whose documentaries have featured nationally on Channel Nine, at the 2017 Gold Coast Film Festival, and the 2019 LAMPA International Film Festival (Russia).
Working for an award-winning boutique agency since 2007 enabled her to hone her craft, diversify her skill set and deliver exceptional multimedia and film for multiple platforms and audiences.
She’s won an Australian Cinematographers Society Award for her work on Swell Sculpture Festival, was a Gold Coast Music Award finalist for co-directing Amy Shark’s music video “Weekends” and her recent self-funded trip to Nigeria to produce “Uncontained Love: Love > Fear” won the 2018 CMAA award for Compelling Film / TV / Video Content. In 2020, she was awarded the Graham Wade Pilgrim Media Prize for her portfolio of work in Mozambique with charity Mission Educate.
In February 2020, Jude was invited to speak at the United Nations’ 58th Commission for Social Development on “Social Impact Films as a means to Promoting Inclusion”, in conjunction with the screening of the film she produced and directed about Mission Educate.
FishFilms was formed to drive her work with NGOs, charities and social enterprises toward the forefront as she seeks to tell “people stories” that inspire and connect humanity.
