KELLY WALKER is an Australian multi-hyphenate filmmaker. At a young age, her dream was to be a stripper. She had seen the movies Gypsy and Flashdance and the female protagonists spoke to her on a deep level. Her mom fretfully sat her down and explained that Natalie and Jennifer were actors, and Walker decided that was a pretty good plan B. She collaborated with other fierce 14 years olds and they created and starred in nonsensical 80-minute films that her grandma refused to watch, but drunk uncles loved and recommended to friends. Obviously moving to America was the next step, because a lot of stripper roles were cast in Los Angeles. She went on to do Films and TV Shows, most recently, recurring characters on ABC’s Last Man Standing and DW’s Swamp Thing.
She's written and directed multiple short films in the festival circuit, most notably The Brownlist, directed and edited by Walker. The Brownlist had a successful festival run and won the Jury Award for Best Short Film at Bentonville Film Festival.
In 2017 she was invited to participate in Australian's In Film's Writers Lab for her feature script My Fiona and completed shooting in the Summer 2019. My Fiona is Walker's debut feature as a writer and director. The film was set to World Premiere at BFI Flare in March, 2020, but due to the pandemic the film will be released in 2021.
