Khoa Dos Job
Khoa Do came to Australia and went on to become an actor, writer, director and philanthropist who in 2005 won the Young Australian of the Year Award for his ‘leadership, compassion, and will to inspire and inform Australians on issues that affect our communities.’ In 2004, Do was the youngest film-maker in Australian history to be nominated for an AFI Award for Best Director, and has since gone on to be nominated for and win many awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at the Vietnamese International Film Festival for his film Footy Legends, starring Claudia Karvan. Another of Do’s films, Mother Fish, about the journey of Vietnamese boat people was a tremendous success, winning awards at the Sydney Film Festival, Canada International Film Festival, Orlando Film Festival and the Vietnamese International Film Festival. Since these achievements, Do has continued to work with marginalized communities, most recently with newly-arrived refugees from Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia. Do has created the first-ever African-Australian feature film, Falling for Sahara, a love story set in Melbourne’s inner-west.
Khoa Do was awarded the Young Australian of the Year in 2005, the first time a film-maker has been awarded the accolade.

Koah also did volunteer work with disadvantaged young adults. He was asked to teach them film making techniques to these "at risk" young people, so he decided to take a hands on approach and made a film with his class. the script was based of thing that actually happened to these people E.G. homelessness, drug addiction and crime. All of the major roles were played by first time actors and the result is now the "internationally acclaimed, The finished people." this experience helped multiple people realize a passion or dream for film and help express feeling that may have been difficult to get out to other people.

CATHOLIC COMPASSION DIRECTOR
FILM FINISHED FISH
HERO IMMIGRANT KHOA
LEADERSHIP MOTHER PEOPLE
leadership: He takes charge when he needs to and makes sure him and the people he is working with all have their ideas put ideas through and makes sure every one is on the same level.
Compassion: He takes pride in his work and makes sure every one enjoys work as much as he does.
Guidance: Khoa was able to help the kids on the set of the finished people talk about how they feel and help them express that throughout the film.
WHY I CHOOSE HIM
I chose him because he had a real passion for what he does and shared it with every one in the community. He taught children with nowhere to go so they could learn the skills they needed to have a little hope.
Some of the things Khoa has done or been through or done is amazing and he has helped many people realize a passion they have for film or just have a little more to live for in life. he clearly shows that he is a worthy christian hero.
