Eleonora Mignoli

Screenwriter and Script Reader

I am a UK-based Screenwriter. After living in Italy (my country of origin) and Australia, I have now settled in Sheffield, but I consider myself an international filmmaker.

As a writer, I’m interested in themes of identity, gender, family, and age-politics. I’ve been praised for my ability to couple original world-building premises with emotional, character-led stories. My screenplays have consistently scored in the top ranks of prestigious UK and international competitions, including Austin Film Festival and Nicholl Fellowship

DUSK, my feature dystopian drama, has been recently optioned by CE50, Manchester-based production company Old Hall Films, and it’s in the development stage.

I also have a passion for short-form storytelling, and have written several short films, including the award-winning, BBC-commissioned short Rory Romantic.

As a Script Reader, I freelance for several award-winning UK production companies and international screenwriting and writing competitions. My experience in this field stems from years of working in independent cinema across the UK, Italy, and Australia. I have a keen eye for diverse storytelling and a solid understanding of plot and characters, also thanks to my studies in screenwriting at the Sydney Film School and NFTS.
