Rebecca Thomson

Rebecca is a filmmaker based in nipaluna/Hobart who loves storytelling and connecting with people through a variety of formats and genres. To that end Rebecca has directed and produced short documentaries, web series, horror films, activist films and music videos. In 2019 Rebecca completed the Screen Australia funded A Hairy Problem about female body hair, which has had over a million views online. Rebecca is also responsible for genre shorts Cupcake: A Zombie Lesbian Musical, Slashed and The Jelly Wrestler which have screened at more than seventy film festivals worldwide including Frameline San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro International Short Film Fest, New York City International Film Festival. Rebecca is one of the filmmakers behind Women of the Island, a web series of short documentaries telling the stories of the fascinating women who inhabit the island of Tasmania. As well as being viewed extensively online, the series took out the Grand Jury Prize at Berlin Web Fest 2019, Best Cinematography at LA Webfest and Best Direction in a Doco Series at Baltimore Webfest.

Over the past twelve months Rebecca has been joyfully collaborating with songstress Monique Brumby on music video clips, developing a web series of original fairytale films with creative producer Catherine Pettman, working on a hybrid theatre/film project about the mental load that mothers carry, and has recently completed the Screen Australia funded animated documentary series entitled There Is No ‘I’ In Island which weaves the self-recorded voices of Tasmanians during Covid-19 lockdown into a strange, beautiful animated landscape. There Is No I In Island premiered at Ten Days On The Island in March and since then has been screening at festivals across the world. Rebecca also just directed a proof of concept for a comedy tv series Leather & Latex Pty Ltd.
