screenwriter & director

Simona Calo

I was born in Milan (Italy) and powered in the UK :) where it all started. I wrote my first screenplay for fun and I was lucky enough to start writing professionally very soon.

In 2018 I was semi-finalist for the Golden Plume in Cannes with “The Dark Side of the Law”, a feature drama/thriller script about racial and religious issues.

In 2017 I wrote and directed “Ovunque ma non qui” (Anywhere but here). A multi-award winning Italian short film about violence against women.

In 2016 I had the opportunity to work on an interesting biopic “E poi la fine” (And then the end shall be) an award-winning documentary film about the famous Italian painter Dario Chiericallo, he’s such a character!

I’ve just completed a brand new project “Hasty Decisions”, a co-production among UK – USA and Italy. It’s a short film about bullying and mass shootings and we’re finally ready for film festivals!

What I do

Storytelling - Screenwriting - Corporate Videos - Commercials - Documentaries - Movies

Screenwriting & Storytelling

It’s fun to create characters and decide their fate, it makes me feel really powerful!

Corporate Videos & Commercials

A commercial can be memorable, if you find the right story you can reach a massive audience.

Documentaries & Movies

It’s a long journey from pre-production to distribution, but you get to travel with awesome people.
