Portrait of Alicia Easaw-Mamutil

Alicia Easaw-Mamutil

Alicia has been producing absurd comedies for close to a decade. She works in film but is deeply influenced by theatre. She creates warm but fiercely passionate work environments. She picks her crew carefully and prefers to work with friends.

In recent years Alicia has chosen to work exclusively with her partner and Director, Archie Chew. Their films are defined by textural and colourful production design, orchestration of movement and music, and comically existential stories. They tell stories that compel audiences to stop wasting their lives, define their passions and pursue them relentlessly. Alicia has a Masters of Arts Screen: Producing, from the national film school - AFTRS, where she wrote a thesis on the need for auteur producing in comedy filmmaking. It was not received well. Regardless, she has put her thesis to practice and her work has been featured in several film festivals internationally, particularly in Sweden. In Australia, her work is received warmly too, with selections at Sydney Film Festival, St Kilda Film Festival, Melbourne Queer Film Festival and two Academy Accredited wins at Flickerfest. In addition to this, she has assisted a variety of Producers including Judi Levine and Lizzette Atkins. They loved her thesis.
