Academy Award qualifying
Winner of Best Short Film at Sitges
World premiere at Tribeca Film Festival
"Turner is an absolute standout."
Graduating with First Class Honours from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2013, Laura Jane has gone on to perform locally with Red Stitch Actors Theatre & Complete Works Theatre Company, and internationally with Chunky Move.
Her Academy Award qualifying and solo performance short film, Curve premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has gone on to screen at over 50 festivals worldwide, collecting multiple award wins along the way, including Best Short Film at Sitges Film Festival – one of the world’s largest and leading international film festivals.
Since 2017, Laura Jane’s focus has shifted to creating, supporting and starring in female driven content. A soon-to-be film school graduate, she teamed up with Girls Act Good (a collection of female creatives) to create the award winning web series, Last Breath which has gone one to screen across multiple countries.
In 2019, Laura Jane adapted Cate Kennedy’s The Testosterone Club for her graduate film (credited as director, producer, editor and screenplay co-writer), and 2020 saw her return to the stage as Lolita in a sold out season of SLUT*, written by the highly acclaimed playwright, Patricia Cornelius and directed by Rachel Baring.
*Due to the COVID-19 crisis, SLUT's season was abruptly cut short.
The creatives involved are hopeful for a return season once it is safe to return to the theatre.
