my name is Simona Calò, 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!
I’m a daily writer so I’m working on a few screenplays too, if you’re a producer or a distributor just drop me a line to know more…
Thank you for taking the time to read my story!
