Bill Mousoulis is one of Australia’s most prolific independent filmmakers, with approximately 100 films to his name. As well as making shorts and medium-length films such as the award-winning drama Between Us (1989, 37 mins) and the poetry-film collaboration A Sufi Valentine (2004, 34 mins), Mousoulis has also made eight feature-length films, including Lovesick (2002, 70 mins), Blue Notes (2006, 93 mins) and A Nocturne (2007, 70 mins), which won Best Film at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival in 2007 and also screened in numerous film festivals in Europe in 2008.
In 1985 he founded the Melbourne Super 8 Film Group, a co-operative that lasted until 2001 as an active, recognised organisation. In 1999, Mousoulis founded the online film journal Senses of Cinema, a continuing journal, with The Times newspaper in the UK naming it "Best Film journal website".

Mousoulis' work as a filmmaker is acknowledged by film critic Adrian Martin, who has labelled Mousoulis "one of Australia's most committed independent filmmakers". And current writer for The Age newspaper in Melbourne, Jake Wilson, has called Mousoulis "an independent film legend".


Best Cinematography (Nick Hayward) & Best Innovation in Underground Cinema, Melbourne Underground Film Festival, July 2003.

"Challenging and brilliant … Mousoulis calls into question aspects of the dominant narrative mode of cinematic storytelling … Although cumulatively hypnotic, each individual shot has a harmony and a self-contained materiality that would allow it to stand alone like a Lumière Brothers short … A dream composed of pure cinematic reality." - Maximilian Le Cain, Metro Magazine.

"Slow in its impact ... but enlivened by some terrifically surprising moments". - Adrian Martin, The Age.

"Stark and unsettling". - Cameron Grace, In-Press magazine.
