Olivia Costa was selected to take part in First Break NSW and successfully completed the program in June 2022.
Olivia is a writer and filmmaker interested in work that is poetic and affecting, often straddling the fine line between absurdism and reality, intimacy and distance.
Olivia works as a notetaker on longform projects and in the commercial world as a Director’s Assistant and treatment writer. 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 & 2021. Olivia has just completed a Script Anatomy course to develop an original show and is developing a feature film.
Olivia’s directing work includes short film, Nina, which was screened at Melbourne Queer Film Festival and London Fringe Queer Film Festival. Her music videos have been featured on Rage, MTV and as part of Clipped Film Festival. Olivia pays her respects to the Gadigal people as the traditional owners and storytellers of the land on which she lives and works.
