Jules Duncan

Jules Duncan writes films with humour and heart. He tells stories about characters who are recognisable yet idiosyncratic, much like the backwaters and ‘burbs that they hail from.

His first feature film credit Rams, starring Sam Neill and Michael Caton, is slated for release in early 2020 through Roadshow. A reimagining of the Icelandic film Hrutar, Jules brought a uniquely Australian tone to the universal story about feuding brothers.

Jules’ latest action comedy The Big Yarn won the 2019 AWG Monte Miller award for Best Unproduced Australian screenplay, as well as ScreenWest’s Bill Warnock Award. The companion proof of concept short film Partners won Best Comedy at the 2018 St Kilda Film Festival.

His first screenplay Bogan Wedding was financed by Screen Australia and has been optioned by producer Robyn Kershaw.

Prior to screenwriting, Jules worked as a journalist, TV reporter, and producer.
