Julian Karikalan

The Storyteller

Julian Karikalan is an award-winning, Indian-born Australian filmmaker, screenwriter, and storyteller based in Sydney, Australia. His first filmmaking expedition, "Love and Love Only", completed on a microbudget, has been well-received by audiences and marks the storyteller’s entry into the film Industry. It created a strong impact and unique appeal to a global audience who formed a deep connection with its characters. The movie is available worldwide on various platforms, including Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Tubi, and Plex. 

"Let's Go Below The Rainbow" is his second filmmaking expedition on a microbudget. The film was inspired by the storyteller's quest in delving deeper into the conversation of the intersection of sexual orientation, religiosity, and societal reactions as well as highlighting a few under-catered yet pressing social issues. The entire project was completed with Julian Karikalan as a 'One-Person Crew' taking care of every aspect of the filmmaking process from script to screen.
