Roobla Podcast EP 3: Josephine Mackerras

The award winning writer and director talks about her debut feature film Alice!

Hello everybody, what’s up? You’re listening to the Roobla Podcast with me, Tom Salmon! The show that dives into music, film and games and everything else in between.

My guest on this week’s episode is Josephine Mackerras, who wrote, directed and produced her debut feature film Alice (2019) starring Emilie Piponnier and Martin Swabey. The film had its world premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival on the 10th of March and won the SXSW Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature and CherryPicks Female First Feature Award.

We jumped into Josephine’s filmmaking career, the double standard women face within society and what her dream film project would be, all right before she headed off to SXSW and her debut film stormed the festival!

You can read L Steed’s glowing review of Alice right now!
