Kalani Gacon is an audacious, award winning filmmaker from the beautiful town of Katoomba, Australia who tells the stories of dying cultures, people’s dreams, and the frictions of life facing human beings in the changing world.
He has worked across 4 continents in search of stories that touch the heart. He began his career working in TV and News at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and has recently been working professionally in the film industry in Vancouver, Canada. He works intuitively with established and non-actors to create authentic and powerful experiences in film, often mixing fiction and non-fiction together in the same timeline to create that special magic.
Kalani has spent 5 years living and working in Nepal, where he has directed and produced 2 award winning films, with his latest 'The Sound of Dreaming' currently in post production.
His award winning documentary feature 'Journey to the Centre of the Heart', telling the story of outward migration in Nepal and the inward migration of foreigners, is currently playing across film festivals internationally.
