Marie Craven

Marie Craven is a film-maker in Queensland, Australia, who has been making shorts for 35 years, producing about 75 films over that time. Most of them are video poems that have been made over the past five years. She has exhibited extensively at international festivals and events, and gathered many awards. Her video poems are often net-collaborations with writers and other artists around the world. She has freelanced as a teacher of screen-writing at universities, technical colleges and community centres, a reviewer of films and books, an arts administrator, and a curator of film exhibitions, most notably the Australian National Focus at the 1994 Festival de Cine Experimental de Madrid. Her first experience of film-making was in the mid-1980s, in the underground media community in Melbourne.
