Marsha Emerman

Marsha is a documentary producer, director, writer and researcher with over twenty-five years' experience. Her film CHILDREN OF THE CROCODILE, a personal history of East Timor, was broadcast nationally in Australia on SBS TV, screened in cinemas, and showed in festivals around the world. It won Best Documentary at Toronto's Inside Out Film Festival, Award of Excellence at Through Her Eyes Film Festival, and was included in a major exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Other credits include Lihok Pilipina, about women in the Philippines and Intersections, about new migrants to Australia.

Marsha's 2015 feature documentary ON THE BANKS OF THE TIGRIS is a musical odyssey that uncovers the hidden - and almost erased - story of Iraqi music. It won Best Documentary at the Baghdad International Film Festival, Audience Award at the Arab Film Festival in San Francisco, and Best Director Documentary at the Nepal Human Rights Film Festival.

In the USA, Marsha gained an MA in Cinema Studies from San Francisco State University and worked on such classic films as"Dark Circle", "The Day After Trinity" and "The Fall of the I-Hotel". Since migrating to Australia in 1989, she has been a lecturer in the documentary MA program at the VCA School of Film & TV. Her 'Women and Documentary Film' class, and expert knowledge of women's contribution to documentary, have led to visiting lectureships at the University of Oregon and Portland State University.
