Trish FitzSimons is a documentary filmmaker, exhibition curator and convenor of the Bachelor of Digital Media Production. With a first degree in social history, much of her media work has explored historical themes, including Snakes and Ladders: A Film about Women, Education and History (ABC, 1987), Another Way? (SBS, 1997) and Channels of History: A Social History Exhibition (2002). She is currently working on a book on the contemporary history of Australian documentary with Pat Laughren and Associate Professor Dugald Williamson (UNE).

She has been active in successive Australian International Documentary Conferences, being on the Board in 1990 and 1997, and as the academic representative on the National Steering Committee and the inaugural National Board from 1999 until 2003.
