Romi is an Australian writer and director. Most recently, Romi completed her first feature film WHAT IF IT WORKS? - a colourful dramedy produced by BAFTA/Golden Globe nominated Tristram Miall (Strictly Ballroom, The Black Balloon). It had its U.S. premiere at the 2017 Cinequest Film Festival and soon after snapped up the ‘Best Australian Indie Film Award’ at the Gold Coast Film Festival. The film will continue to ride a wave of Australian and U.S. festival screenings. So stay tuned. Back in 2010, Romi premiered her short film CHOCOLATE CAKE at the Melbourne International Film festival. The film went on to screen across Europe and North America, including the prestigious Aspen Shortsfest. It later made its TV premiere on SBS and picked up international distribution, selling to Japan and Europe. In 2012, Romi sharpened her directing chops with an attachment on Tim Winton’s ‘The Turning’. She then hit the festival circuit again in 2014 with short film NO ONE IS LISTENING ANYMORE!, returning to the Aspen Shortsfest, and on to Cleveland, Denver, Milwaukee and many more festivals where audiences the world over responded to its distinct fast paced dialogue and pathos tinged humor. It picked up international sales across Asia. Romi has also enjoyed directing for live comedy acts at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and writing for theatre. Her play TOO BEAUTIFUL FOR GARBAGE was a season sellout and received rave reviews. She is currently developing it for TV. (City: Melbourne)
