Katie Flaxman

Katie loves stories. She loves listening to them, reading them, watching them and crafting them.

As a film student at uni, she snuck into the tape-to-tape suite after hours to make a film for a friend and her passion for picture-cutting (and 90s post-rock) was born.

Cut to 20 years later and Katie has edited a number of critically acclaimed shorts, documentaries and feature films which have screened at some of the world's most prestigious festivals, including Sundance, Berlin, Tribeca, Tokyo, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals. Her television work, both drama and factual, has screened across all Australian networks and also in the US and UK.

Katie's first feature film, The Last Reel, took her to Cambodia to edit in khmer language. Katie's later work on Damien Power's feature film, Killing Ground, was lauded by the likes of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter following its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017. Power's short, Peekaboo, also won Katie the Best Editing Award at Flickerfest and nomination for Best Editing in a Short by the Australian Screen Editors' Guild. The ASE also nominated Katie's documentary Outsiders, directed by Adrian Brown, for Best Feature Documentary and her recent work on ABC series, Fisk, for Best Editing in a Television Comedy.

Katie was also fortunate enough to spend time editing documentaries in NYC for Radical Media. An experience she will remember as fondly for the work as for the unlimited access to cream cheese bagels.

More recently, Katie flexed her factual editing chops on Rogue Rubin's feature documentary, Lion Spy; Filthy Rich and Homeless for Blackfella Films; and The China Century for Wildbear.

Katie just completed the edit on Jub Clerc's debut feature film, Sweet As. After premiering at MIFF in August, it will head to TIFF (Toronto) for it's North American debut.

Katie lives in Melbourne with her family and continues to seek out creatively challenging projects with inspiring storytellers.

Her kids would like her to edit cartoons.
