Gullifer is clearly a talent to watch.
— Short of the Week


Sunday Emerson Gullifer is an award-winning filmmaker and masters graduate of the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia.

Her short film, TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, AND TOMORROW, had its world premiere at Sydney Film Festival in 2017 where it was Highly Commended in the Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films, and premiered internationally at Telluride Film Festival as one of just 16 short films in the Filmmakers of Tomorrow program, curated by Gregory Nava (Frida, El Norte) and Barry Jenkins (Moonlight). The film later premiered online as a Vimeo Staff Pick and was featured on Short of the Week, with Women and Hollywood calling it "a must-watch for anyone who is invested in the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements".

In 2018, Sunday was awarded the Lexus Australia Short Film Fellowship, presented by Sydney Film Festival. The $50,000 fellowship funded production of her latest short film, BROKEN LINE NORTH, and saw the film premiere at Sydney Film Festival in 2019.

Sunday’s work is internationally acclaimed, having won a slew of awards and two Australian Directors’ Guild Award nominations. Originally hailing from a background in theatre, she is drawn to bold stories told with heart.
