About Aiko

Aiko Hilkinger is an award-winning, queer, screenwriter of color from Colombia. Her fantasy animated pilots have placed in numerous contests, most notably ScreenCraft, Filmmatic, and Fast Track Fellowship. They were also named one of Network ISA's 'Top 25 Screenwriters to Watch' in 2021.

Hilkinger writes magical stories, blending the past and future, to create new worlds filled with diverse characters that children and teenagers can relate to and see themselves represented in. Her goal is to be a commercial animation writer, who pushes for diversity and inclusion in her stories. ​

But most importantly, she believes that through her animation work she can connect with kids and teens to help teach healthy communication and normalize talking about things that might make us uncomfortable.
