Juliette Bonass

Academy Member

Over the past few years, Juliette has cemented herself as one of Ireland's leading producers in film and television. Having studied Media Arts in DIT, Juliette began her production career with a number of short films and television comedies. As line producer on The Savage Eye, production coordinator on Your Bad Self and producer of the series of charitable sketches Immaturity For Charity, Juliette cultivated a body of work alongside the likes of David McSavage, Amy Huberman, Brendan, Brian and Domhnall Gleeson.

In 2014, Juliette made her feature film debut with Glassland starring Jack Reynor and Toni Collette, swiftly followed by Get Up and Go starring Killian Scott and Peter Coonan, the former of which went on to be nominated for 'Best Film' at the 2015 IFTA Film Awards. Later that year, Juliette was nominated by the Irish Film Board and European Film Promotion to go to Cannes as one of just 20 'Producers on the Move' worldwide.

In 2016, Juliette worked alongside two of Ireland's most gifted artists; multi-award winning playwright Enda Walsh and composer Donnacha Dennehy on the chamber opera, The Last Hotel. She then went on to co-produce the IFTA Award winning feature film A Date For Mad Mary alongside Element's Ed Guiney, directed by Darren Thornton.

Juliette was the producer on the short film Psychic, written by Rory Gleeson and directed by Brendan Gleeson who also starred alongside sons Brian and Domhnall. Also in 2018, Juliette was the producer on the feature film Rosie written by Roddy Doyle and directed by Paddy Breathnach.
