Award-winning writer/director/producer Frances Calvert was originally from Sydney, Australia and graduated from Sydney University. Her film-making began in earnest when she teamed up with British producer/director Lindsey Merrison in 1987 in Berlin to make Talking Broken, her first film. Her company, based in Berlin, produced films with an Australian connection for German and English-speaking foreign markets.

Calvert died unexpectedly in Sydney, on a visit after finishing her annual teaching commitment at Yangon Film School in Myanmar.
