Kirsty Hamilton, an alumna of the DEGANZ Women Filmmakers Incubator, is set to direct short film Save Me. 

Written by Suzanne Adamson, the short film follows a mother-daughter dynamic; when a teenage girl is blamed for her brother’s death by her grieving mother, she makes a sacrifice to win back her mother’s love.

Kirsty spoke about the project saying: “As a writer… I know that when a script fills my head with visceral, emotional images as Suzanne’s does, it’s a given I want to be on board and facilitate the screenplay to the best iteration on screen.”

Kirsty graduated from the inaugural intake of the Incubator in 2016. She has since gone on to direct various projects. 

Save Me is currently in pre-production. See the team’s Facebook page to follow their journey.
