Katie Flaxman

Katie Flaxman is an award-winning editor who has edited over 40 shorts, TV episodes, feature films and documentaries in the past 15 years.

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

As a uni student, she snuck into the tape-to-tape suite after hours to make a film for a friend and her passion for picture-cutting (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, Palm Springs, Karlovy Vary, Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals. Her television work, both drama and factual, has screened across all Australian networks and also in the US and UK.

Katie’s work on Damien Power’s debut feature film, “Killing Ground” was recently lauded by the likes of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter following the film’s international 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.

Katie lives in Melbourne with her family and continues to seek out creatively challenging projects with inspiring storytellers.  The past year, these included: Channel 10 comedy/drama series “My Life is Murder” starring Lucy Lawless; feature documentary, “Lion Spy” (directed by Rogue Rubin) which exposed the African lion hunting trade; and the third season of acclaimed documentary-series, “Filthy, Rich and Homeless” for SBS.

Her daughter would prefer her to edit cartoons.
