Billie Pleffer

Billie is an award winning writer and director. With two awards at the Berlin International Film Festival, an Australian Writers Guild Award, and ADG and AACTA nominations under her belt, Billie has just made the leap to long form writing and directing the episodic pilot series DEADLOCK. An original youth focused high-octane drama, commissioned by the ABC, currently playing on TV and iView.

A graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, Billie is the recipient of the Screen NSW Emerging Filmmakers Fund, Screen Australia’s Hot Shot Program, the Talent Escalator Fund and in 2018, Screen Australia’s Talent USA. Her shorts have played at prestigious festivals nationally and internationally from the Berlinale to the Sydney Dendy Awards.

Billie has a unique eye and a poetic visual language and is driven to create work which subverts the familiar in striking and surprising ways.
