about

Katie Flaxman

Katie is an AACTA-nominated and award-winning editor who has edited over 40 shorts, TV episodes, feature films and documentaries in the past 20 years.

Katie loves stories. She loves listening to them, reading them, watching them and crafting them.

As a film student at uni, she snuck into the tape-to-tape suite after hours for a project and her passion for picture-editing (and 90s post-rock) was born.

Cut to 20 years later and Katie has edited a number of critically acclaimed shorts, documentaries and feature films which have screened at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals, including Sundance, Berlin, Tribeca, Tokyo, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals. Her television work, both scripted and factual, has screened across all Australian networks and also in the US and UK.

Katie’s first feature film, The Last Reel, took her to Cambodia to edit in khmer language. Katie’s later work on Damien Power’s feature film, Killing Ground, was lauded by the likes of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter following its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017. Power’s short, Peekaboo, also won Katie the Best Editing Award at Flickerfest and nomination for Best Editing in a Short by the Australian Screen Editors’ Guild. The ASE also nominated Katie’s documentary Outsiders, directed by Adrian Brown, for Best Feature Documentary and her work on ABC/Netflix series, Fisk, for Best Editing in a Television Comedy.

More recently, Katie edited Jub Clerc’s debut feature film, Sweet As. After premiering at MIFF in August 2022, where it won the Blackmagic Award for Innovation, it picked up the NETPAC Award at TIFF (Toronto), followed by the Crystal Bear for Best Film (Generation K-Plus) at the Berlin Film Festival. It has screened at numerous festivals around the world and has been nominated for seven AACTA Awards, including best Editing in a Feature Film.

Since then, Katie has edited feature film The Appleton Ladies Potato RaceĀ for Paramount + and just completed post on a six-part television comedy, White Fever, premiering later this year on the ABC.

Katie lives in Melbourne with her family and continues to seek out creatively challenging projects with inspiring storytellers.
