Miranda Otto – Festival Guest
Miranda Otto most recently starred as Aunt Zelda in Netflix’s CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, and opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell in Fox Searchlight’s DOWNHILL. As illustrated by her body of work, the lineup of directors who have hired Miranda is extraordinary, ranging from Steven Spielberg, Terrence Malick, Peter Jackson, Michel Gondry, and Robert Zemeckis to name a few. Miranda has been nominated for “Best Actress” four times by the Australian Film Institute–Australia’s equivalent to the Oscar. She has also earned an Australian Film Critics Circle Award nomination for her performance in LAST DAYS OF CHEZ NOUS as well as for LOVE SERENADE, which won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
