Yannick Jamey


Director, The Big Wait

Born in Australia, raised in France and educated in Canada, Yannick Jamey is an emerging multicultural director currently based in Sydney, Australia. His latest short, The Big Wait (SXSW, Hot Docs) is currently in its festival run. His previous titles include the 2022 short documentary Made of Light (DOC NYC, Antenna) and the 2022 experimental short Crusoe of Tin City (Flickerfest, SF Shorts Grand Jury Prize). With three more documentary shorts at various stages of production, Born Underground (Australia), The Ruin of the Earth (Ireland), and Death of a Language (Guatemala), he is quickly assembling a body of work that explores unique people and places, often drawn to the relationship between a person’s worldview and the landscape they live in.
