Nicola Castle

Editor, Director

Nicola Castle began her career as an editor, achieving recognition at the 2011 NZ Television awards for cutting award-winners The Green Chain and Whare Taonga. In 2015 she directed short film Madness Made Me for online series Loading Docs, about a woman's time in a mental hospital. Castle splits her time between Auckland and Melbourne, and holds a Masters in Screen Production from Auckland University.

I wanted to make a film that was against the typical story of mental health ... I wanted to suggest that the experience of madness is one that can have value in and of itself — to an individual but also for society at large. Nicola Castle talks about Madness Made Me, on website Women for One, September 2015
