Judi Levine

Judi Levine has had a distinctive producing career in feature films and documentaries, and has been associated with award-winning film projects since her first narrative short  film PLEAD GUILTY, GET A BOND won an AFI award for Best Screenplay in a Short Film. In addition to producing in Australia, Levine’s work has led her to projects all around the globe. From 1982-1984, Levine worked on the six-part documentary series DESTINATION AUSTRALIA: THE MIGRANT EXPERIENCE SINCE 1788, participating in all aspects of development and production, including three months on the road capturing the extraordinary stories of Australia as a migrant nation. Levine then took on the role of Development Producer on KOSKY IN PARADISE, about legendary theatre and opera director Barrie Kosky. After working in Europe and then relocating to Los Angeles, Levine produced HOLLYWOOD GOLD for the Discovery Channel, a wry insider’s look at the jewelry trade of Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Levine has spent the past 10 years focusing primarily on narrative features, among them the multi-award-winning film THE SESSIONS, the WWII drama THE CATCHER WAS A SPY on which she was a Co-Producer, the romantic comedy FALLING FOR FIGARO, and most recently the dramatic comedy HOW TO PLEASE A WOMAN. Levine has a number of projects in development, but her passion project is JUST LIKE US (working title) a documentary she is currently producing about 11 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teens who, in 2001, saved up to go to Hollywood and, now in their 30s, speak passionately about how that trip changed their lives and the community at large.
