Coming from a Fine Art background, Meloni began making poetic documentaries for Channel 4, the British Film Institute and the Arts Council of England with her films:

  • THIS CHARMING MAN, a portrait of her father, an ex-coalminer turned inventor

THIS CHARMING MAN was selected by BFI for their 100 British Films reflecting ‘Britishness.’

Moving into drama, her short films:

  • DISH, commissioned by Film4 and The Film Council was selected by the British Council and screened to acclaim at International Film Festivals and continues to be transmitted on Channel 4 and Film4
  • LAP, commissioned by Screen Yorkshire, was selected by the British Council and shown in competition at International Film Festivals around the world

Selected for Creative England’s emerging talent scheme, Meloni has recently completed filming TRiGGA, commissioned through Creative England’s and BFI Network I-Shorts scheme. It was selected to screen at BAFTA qualifying festivals, Aesthetica Short Film Festival and London Short Film Festival.

Her feature film SHY BIRD was one of twelve projects selected for Creative England, BFI and BBC Films I-Features scheme.
