About Francesca

A 2019 Nicholl Semi-Finalist with my feature script The Code, I’m a creative full of curiosity who loves historical fiction, unusual points of view and “what if” scenarios. My stories explore universal themes or controversial issues. Most of the times, they have a happy ending.

I also write librettos for live performances, with composer Federico Bonetti Amendola.

I'm currently living in Vancouver, Canada, and get to work as PA on set - 2nd unit is fun :)
Looking forward to connect with creatives!

Unique traits: Terrible at throwing Frisbee. Have a set of Tarot cards in my purse just in case. I dream music, sometimes.
