Aimée-Lee Xu Hsien Curran is a Chinese-Irish, award-winning Writer/Director with a natural flair for directing actors in tongue-in-cheek dramadies with heart.


Her bold visual style and eye for design lends itself to rich imagery; worlds populated by droll characters where reality is just slightly askew. It’s funny. It’s unashamedly hip. It might make you feel a little bit uncomfortable. 

Aimee-Lee's commercial work includes TVCs for CommBank, PayPal, H&M, and Ad Standards.


Her short film, Jump has screened at over 25 international film festivals, and won Best Short Film at the Academy Award-accredited Palm Springs International ShortFest, and Blue Mountains Film Festival.


Season Two of the web series Syd2030, directed by Aimée-Lee, won Best International Web Series at the LA Film, TV & Webisode Festival, the Melbourne WebFest and Dublin WebFest.


As a prolific music video director, Aimée-Lee has worked with a host of Aria-award nominated artists including Lime Cordiale, Thundamentals, Hellions, and Ruby Boots. Her clip for Caitlin Harnett & the Pony Boys '5AM' won Best Narrative at the Clipped Music Video Festival 2020.

Aimée-Lee completed a Directing Attachment on Kim Farrant's feature film, Strangerland, starring Nicole Kidman, Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes, and in 2018 was selected for the Australian Director's Guild Gender Matters: Commercial Directing program, where she was placed with Photoplay Films.
