Celeste Geer

  

Celeste Geer is an independent filmmaker currently preparing to move from a small rural town just outside Melbourne, Australia to Beijing. A graduate of VCA, the School of Film and TV (1999), Celeste also worked at The Australian Film School AFTRS developing curricular programs for the Centre for Screen Business. She has recently begun co-producing her work as a writer / director of intimate, character based documentaries Mick’s Gift (ABC TV 2002) Veiled Ambition (SBS 2006) and Then The Wind Changed (2011). Her films have been screened widely and won awards. Most recently, Then The Wind Changed won the 2012 Walkley Award for Best Documentary, the 2013 AACTA Award for Best Documentary Under One Hour and was nominated for a Logie Award. Celeste is currently working on the internationally-acclaimed online digital stories project Big Stories Small Towns. Then the Wind Changed is a remarkable documentary tracing the aftermath of the Black Saturday fires in February 2007, during which a furious firestorm swept across Victoria. Within weeks of the disaster, Celeste, herself a local resident, resolved to create a film interweaving her own family’s story with those of her neighbours and friends as they struggled to rebuild their lives. The resulting film is a story of heartbreak and love, redemption and resilience. “I was still gripped by post disaster shock when I started filming. Amidst total chaos the camera gave me purpose, a slight distance and a reason to really look closely for the first signs of new life.” www.thenthewindchanged.com
