Ade Djajamihardja

Ade’s career began at ABCTV aged 19. He worked on iconic Australian programs such as Countdown Revolution, THE BIG GIG and THE LATE SHOW. Ade held several senior positions overseas as a producer and CEO including CEO of Ten on Ten Pictures and Enfiniti Productions, Malaysia. He co-produced what was then the biggest historical epic film in Malaysia’s history PUTERI GUNUNG LEDANG (A LEGENDARY LOVE), which was the first film from Malaysia to have been shortlisted in consideration for Oscar nomination. He was one of the producers of SALAM CAFÉ (SBS 2008), the first ever Muslim entertainment program screened prime time in a Western country. In 2011, Ade joined the not-for-profit board of Disability Media Australia, just three days prior to a massive stroke. In 2017, he completed studying the Master of Screen Arts & Business at AFTRS. Ade is also a best-selling author. As an Asian Australian from a Muslim family, and as a stroke survivor living with a disability, Ade contributes a rich and unique perspective on inclusive storytelling.
