Brooke’s narrative short films have screened in festivals around the world, including Edinburgh and Rome. Brooke returned to Sydney after receiving a Screen Australia Talent Escalator Grant for her short film Red Rover, which earned her the Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Director at the 2015 Sydney Film Festival’s Dendy Awards, as well as an AWGIE and ADG nomination. Brooke was also selected by actor and director James Franco to write and direct a segment of the compendium feature film The Color of Time, starring James Franco, Jessica Chastain, Mila Kunis and Henry Hopper.
Brooke’s most recent short Outbreak Generation was the result of receiving the Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship in 2016, with the film premiering at the 2017 Sydney International Film Festival. She is in development on several projects, including a television series with Fremantle Media; a feature film, Splitters; and a dramedy series set in Sydney’s inner west which examines mental illness and our culture’s inept response to it.
