Eleonora Mignoli is an Italian-born UK-based screenwriter, repped by Sandra Avila at Inclusion Management and Madeleine Cotter at WGM Atlantic Talent & Literary Group. She has studied in Australia under the guidance of Brian Hannant, writer of Mad Max 2.
In 2017 the BBC commissioned her to write a short film for their series It’s my shout: short films from Wales. DUSK, one of her features, has been recently optioned by CE50, Manchester-based production company Old Hall Films, and is in the development stage. She is working with BBC New Talent Hotlist director Baff Akoto towards the production of her award-winning sci-fi LGBT feature Seed of Knowledge.
Her screenplays have consistently scored in the top ranks of prestigious UK and international competitions, including Austin Film Festival, Sir Peter Ustinov and Nicholl Fellowship.
She is interested in themes of identity, gender, family, and age-politics, and has been praised for her ability to couple original world-building premises with emotional, character-led stories. She is currently developing several TV, feature and short films projects, including a YA Supernatural for television and a family drama on the theme of legacy inspired by her mother.
