Meleesha Bardolia

Melbourne, Victoria

Film-maker, writer

Meleesha has written, directed and produced four award-winning short films. These shorts have resulted in a Melbourne International Film Festival selection and Best Director at NYC Picturestart Film Festival win. Having worked on TV productions such as Barracuda (2016), Seven Types of Ambiguity (2017) and Picnic At Hanging Rock (2018), Meleesha is ready to transition to a longer format. Drawing on elements of her PhD, part of which focuses on feelings about belonging and ownership for migrant groups in Australia, Meleesha will create Guests – a six-part web series exploring the dynamics between migrants working in an airport hotel to be shot by director of photography Alex Cardy.
