    Charlotte Mars

    Australia

    Charlotte was a 2013 Youth Award finalist and received the first ArtStart Screenwriting grant in her native Australia. Charlotte Mars produced GAYBY BABY (2015) alongside director and friend Maya Newell, a feature documentary about 4 children growing up with same sex parents in Australia. The film premiered in 2015 at Hot Docs Toronto and went on to screen at the Sydney Film Festival and BFI London, to name a few. Set against Australia’s ongoing marriage equality debate, the mostly crowd-funded film was briefly banned by the New South Wales state government from screening in local schools. Before GAYBY BABY, Charlotte made several short films, including writing and directing AWAKE and producing FROM HERE. Charlotte cut her teeth at Matchbox Pictures, working for greats such as Australian television producer Penny Chapman and was part of the development team behind such productions as Family Law and Foxtel’s DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND and DEADLINE GALLIPOLI. She is a graduate of the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) film program and divides her time between Australia and Berlin. Her latest short GIRL AND BODY (2019) world premiered at MIFF.
