About Angelena

Angelena Bonet, Founder and CEO of Crystal Heart Productions, is an Australian multi-award winning documentary filmmaker, singer-songwriter, actress and humanitarian. She has created five documentary films, their original soundtracks and two web series Heart Of The Matter and The Angelena Bonet Show. She writes, directs, edits and produces her work in their entirety, including co-writing and singing the soundtracks and describes it purely “as a labour of love”! Angelena's work includes a documentary feature film tetralogy consisting of Angelena: Change The World, Angelena: Heart Of The Matter, Angelena: Light At The End Of The Tunnel and Angelena: Warrior Woman which are all available to rent and buy on Vimeo On Demand. She has also created a documentary short film Change The World which all feature the Original Music Soundtrack she co-wrote and sung from her heart and soul with her late fiancé, Erick Deeby. He had written and recorded instrumental pieces of music for her between 2005 and 2007 then suddenly and unexpectedly passed away three days after they got engaged in August 2007. She then wrote the lyrics and melody to his music after his devastating death and during her time of deepest grief. Then on May 26, 2012 she was a victim of a violent sexual crime whereby she was kidnapped and gang-raped but miraculously survived the attempted murder in her homeland of Australia. Suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a consequence of the horrific attack, orchestrated by someone that she knew and trusted, she vowed to not be silenced and chose to stand up and speak out, not only for herself, but for every other woman and girl who have survived similar violence. Angelena is proud to share her story and songs, which have won 250 film and music awards worldwide thus far, including numerous ‘Best Inspirational Film’, ‘Best Social Justice Film’ and ‘Best Original Soundtrack’ awards. She has also won the ‘Humanitarian Award’ at the Jane Austen International Film Festival 2020 in the U.K. and the ‘Human Spirit Award’ at the DOCS Without Borders Film festival in The Bahamas. Angelena also won ‘Best Woman Filmmaker’, ‘Best Inspirational Film’ and ‘Best Music Video’ seven months in a row at the Vegas Movie Awards. Her online talk show Heart Of The Matter is the winner of the SOCIAL AWARENESS AWARD (Award of Excellence) at the Vegas Movie Awards for the October 2020 Monthly Edition. Her show is dedicated to having women’s voices heard and is available on YouTube. Her highly successful documentary film Change The World was a Market Screening at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. Angelena has been a Jury member for the past four years of The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards (AACTA) and is a judge for the 40th Anniversary 2021 Australian Directors Guild (ADG) Awards on December 3.
