Max Currie

Director

Max Currie began his screen career in his early 20s, after joining the reporting team on groundbreaking LGBT+ show Queer Nation. He developed his scriptwriting skills during extended time in New York. After making some short films and writing for Shortland Street, Currie's debut feature was nominated for Moa Awards in 2014 for Best Director, Writer and Film. Everything We Loved was a drama about two magicians dealing with the loss of their child. In 2020 Currie directed Rūrangi, about a trans activist who returns to his hometown. It became the first web series selected to screen at the annual NZ International Film Festival.

I'm fascinated by good people doing bad things. Max Currie
