Gebhardt has written and directed 8 short films, winning various international awards including Best Direction at the Flickerfest International Short Film Festival for Look Sharp, which explores the iron will of a female photographer compelled to capture the truth beneath the rough exteriors of two sharpie gang members.

She was awarded Kodak Australia’s New Director of 2008 and won a Silver Lion at Cannes in 2009 for her Anzac Memories commercial. She was nominated for the Rising Talent award at the Inside Film Awards in 2008 after graduating from her Masters in Directing at AFTRS.

Amy has directed several documentaries for ABC and SBS, including Heart, which follows the storms of love within the marriage between an artist and muse winning Best Documentary at the Melbourne International Film Festival. She has recently finished a unique project partnering with Screen Australia and YouTube making a film from user generated content depicting a journey into the Australian psyche, We Were Here.

Also an accomplished Cinematographer, Amy has shot over 15 short films and multiple documentaries. She loves to keep her hand in the technicality of the craft.

Combining a love of cinematography, performance and documentary, Amy tells stories that visually inspire and push notions of the human spirit. She is currently developing her first feature with support from Screen Australia.
