Eddie Diamandi

Brunswick, Victoria


Eddie cut his teeth as a film-maker at the School of Film and Television at the Victorian College of the Arts. There, he won numerous awards for two films, Pierrot and Rigor Mortis, which screened at festivals in Australia and overseas. His latest project, Emily, aims to throw a spotlight on the issue of adult illiteracy and the AMP Tomorrow Fund grant helped Eddie to film the story: “Emily has a very subtle message weaved throughout – that it’s never too late to learn to read. I hope it motivates Australians to improve their literacy skills and bring them closer to loved ones by opening up the world of literature and poetry.”
