Zoe is a graduate of Canterbury University School of Fine Arts, where she majored in film theory and practical film (BFA). While studying she made two short documentaries - Night Vision, exploring the extraordinary relationship between a pimp and a prostitute and Mail Order - about men who purchase mail order brides in New Zealand. Mail Order was selected for the Chicago International Film Festival, NZ Media Peace Awards and DOCNZ 06, where she was awarded special mention for Best Emerging Filmmaker. She interned with Gibson Group and Red Sky Productions before deciding to pursue her own independent ideas.
Lost In Wonderland is her first major film. She has since directed several segments for the award winning TV arts show, The Gravy, and has just wrapped shooting on a 35mm short film called Day Trip. In 2008 she won the SPADA pitching award with a feature film idea, inspired by a peculiar hitch hiking adventure she had. Zoe is currently developing another documentary called King of Caravans that she hopes to start shooting in October.
Zoe will be attending both the Auckland and Wellington screenings for Lost in Wonderland.
