A Field Guide to Being a 12 Year Old Girl Unclassified 18+
What a twelvie!
"This is a film about 12 year old girls, made by 12 year old girls, for 12 year old girls, or anyone that has been a 12 year old girl, or will be a 12 year old girl, or wishes they were a 12 year old girl."
Created by Tilda Cobham-Hervey with twelve 12-year-old-girls, this film is a cross between a documentary and a theatre piece, where real girls articulate what they hope for, what they remember and what it feels like to be 12. Performing themselves as part of a filmed field-guide, together these specimens investigate their own species.

Tilda began her career in the arts at Cirkidz, a youth circus in Adelaide. At age 14 she co-founded the award winning circus company Gravity And Other Myths and devised and performed in their show Freefall. Tilda went on to perform with leading dance theatre company Force Majuere in a show called The Age I'm In. Tilda's portrayal of "Billie" in her first feature film 52 Tuesday is widely considered one of the breakout performances from 2014’s Sundance Film Festival. In 2016 Tilda made her television debut in two mini-series: Barracuda with Rachel Griffiths on ABCTV and the The Kettering Incident, alongside Elizabeth Debicki and Mathhew Le Nevez on Foxtel, for which she received a nomination for the Outstanding Newcomer award at the 2017 Logies. In 2016 she also performed a lead role in Andrew Bovell’s play Things i Know to be True, a co production with the Adelaide State Theatre Company and UK's Frantic Assembly. She was nominated for Best Female Actor In A Supporting Role at the 2017 Helpmann awards for this performance.
