Olivia Costa


Olivia Costa is a Sydney-based filmmaker and writer interested in work that is poetic and affecting, often straddling the fine line between absurdism and reality, intimacy and distance.

Olivia’s directing work includes short film, Nina, which screened at the Melbourne Queer Film Festival and London Fringe Queer Film Festival. Her music videos have been featured on Rage, MTV, and as part of Clipped Festival. Olivia has been published in Voiceworks, Harper’s Bazaar, Away, The Brag, Seizure, UTS Anthology, and was a selected artist in the National Young Writers Festival 2020 and 2021. Olivia is developing a drama series and feature film. She was selected as part of the inaugural cohort of the “First Break” program run by the Australian Writers Guild. Olivia pays her respects to the Gadigal people as the traditional owners and storytellers of Eora land on which she lives and works.
