Liz Fields is an Asian-Australian-American writer and filmmaker who has lived in and traveled to 40 different countries across six continents. Traversing both the scripted and documentary spaces, Liz nimbly transfers her skills in character and story development between mediums to craft compelling narratives in whatever field and format they best take shape.
Her work across film and TV has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including a Gracie Award, a GLAAD Nomination, a James Beard Media Award, and Television Academy Honors, which recognizes exceptional programs and their producers who have leveraged the power of television to fuel social change.
A former journalist, Liz first developed her reporting chops in the newsrooms of ABC and VICE, where she interviewed everyone from spies and drug dealers to preachers and insurgent groups. In 2016, Liz documented the insanity of the modern American condition as a presidential campaign embed, and went on to write, direct, and produce content that has appeared on HBO, Netflix, Hulu, PBS, and more.
In 2022, Liz graduated from the New Writers Fellowship with CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment).
