Leonie Savvides
I’m a writer and director of fiction cinema, with a background in fine arts and animation, based in Sydney Australia.
I am deeply moved and driven to create by crisis in human psychology and mental illness, edge-dwellers, outsiders, youth culture and women.

My goal is to make a cinema of truth, encompassing the absurd, the devastating and the infinite.

Art school was my first training ground and I have been a figurative drawer, painter, sculptor, performance artist and animator. Art is still a strong influence in my life and work.

My latest short film Black Cat is currently on the festival circuit, while I work on my first feature script.

My new website will be here soon...
