NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We also wish to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across this country's sacred homelands, and in particular, students and other First Nations members of the NIDA community.

Hannah Sitters

HannahFrom an early age Hannah was fascinated by behind-the-scenes videos of her favourite films and tv shows, and knew she was destined to be a part of that world. The visual world building, storytelling, and collaborative process is at the heart of what drives her.

Hannah has followed this passion to become a production and costume designer for stage and screen, whose work currently spans across short films, music videos, television, commercials, web series, and theatre. Prior to studying at NIDA she completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Screen) with Honours at Flinders University, graduating with First Class Honours, and a University Medal.

She has received four nominations for Best Production Design at the South Australian Screen Awards for The Sister (2013), The Crane Wife (2014), The Little Girl (2015), and Davi (2019). She has also been nominated for the APDG Award for Student Screen Design for The Little Girl (2015), APDG Award for Design for Short Film or Music Video for costume design on Maurice’s Symphony (2017) and APDG Award for Design for Short Film or Music Video for Hilltop Hoods: Exit Sign feat. Illy & Ecca Vandal (2019). She was awarded the William Fletcher Foundation grant for talented young artists (2019) and the Bendigo Bank Adelaide Award (2015).

Hannah looks forward to a career collaborating with many amazing people across stage and screen nationally and internationally.
