About us

Joy House Productions is a boutique company devoted to producing high quality family entertainment through the use of film, television, plays, books, music and art. 


Founded by Joy Hopwood, who has over twenty years in the entertainment industry, is an award winning independent filmmaker, published author and actor who received her lucky break in the late 90’s as the first Asian Australian presenter on A.B.C. television’s Play School. This moment in her life inspired her to create more opportunities for others by writing and creating projects that forefront diversity. 


Joy has been a founding member of the Media & Entertainment and Arts Alliance’s Diversity Committee and has been nominated twice for the prestigious Australian of the Year Awards for her work as a former ambassador for N.S.W. Cancer Council & Mission Australia and her contribution to the arts as she founded the annual Joy House Film Festival, to give a platform for emerging filmmakers and The Wong Side of Life’s “Kindness is for Free” (anti-bullying & racism workshops) in schools. 


At Joy House Productions we believe in creating projects with diversity and giving opportunities for talented, emerging creatives who are passionate and hard working. 


“By working together we can create a kinder and more compassionate society in which we all live in.”
