Event Hosts: Joseph Frangie


Hi there, My name is Joseph Frangie. I’m a young ethnic Australian actor. Last year, I was a member of the inaugural actors of New York Film Academy’s Sydney campus; where I was trained by some of the best in the industry including European Academy Award nominee Clara Voda, who continues to personally mentor me. I got hands on set experience with highly acclaimed directors such as Serhat Caradee (Ceadar Boys) and Samantha Lang (Carlotta, The Well). While studying I also had the opportunity to work with up and coming filmmakers, and took part in a total of 27 short films in just one year, more than any other actor in the history of New York Film Academy. A selection of these films are currently hitting the award season circuit. ‘Wolf’ and ‘Fryboy: Deadline’ have caught the eye of executives at Event cinemas and are set to screen before some of their ‘Cult Classics’.
