Britt Arthur is a documentary filmmaker with a passion for telling character-driven stories that make you laugh, smile, cry and think. Her first documentary, Not in Front of the Kids, about the sex lives of the elderly, won some awards and was a hit in nursing homes. Her TV-doc debut, Give Me A Break, was lauded as being "as funny as a Christopher Guest mockumentary". Since then she has worked with subjects ranging from children, plants, animals and buildings to celebrities, police and accused war criminals.
Her most recent documentary, My Uncle Bluey, won numerous accolades, including an international premiere "In Competition" at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) and an award for Best Direction in a Short Film at the Australian Directors Guild Awards.
Britt is currently directing the documentary Arthouse for ABC-TV’s Artscape.
When she isn’t making films, she is watching them, or making other people watch them. She founded Doco Club in WA – and her inner doco nerd hopes that you will start a Doco Club too.
