Laura Scrivano is a director of film, TV and commercials.
Her recent directing credits include HANNA for Amazon/Working Title/NBCU (2nd unit), The Letdown for Netflix (London unit), award-winning short film Alice starring Sarah Snook (HBO's Succession), and commercial spots for the FA, Budweiser, Scouts UK and Instagram.
Her debut feature, Ring Road, is currently in development with Silver Salt Films and has been awarded early development funding from the BFI Network. She is also in development on sci-fi series Sundowners, written by Dan Prichard and funded by Screen Australia.
Laura’s work has been described as ‘beautifully honest’ (The Guardian), ‘fabulously brought to life’ (Stephen Fry), ‘groundbreaking’ (Sydney Morning Herald), and ‘inspirational’ (PromoNews). Her shorts have screened at festivals internationally, including BFI Flare, Sundance, Oberhausen, Cyprus Film Days, Cinema des Antipodes at Festival de Cannes, and New York Fashion Week.
First-generation Italian-Australian from a small coastal mining town, Laura was raised on a mix of late-80s blockbusters, Australian gothic masterpieces and European avant garde - from Back the Future to Bicycle Thieves, Picnic at Hanging Rock to Twin Peaks, and Labyrinth to La Jetée.
Laura's film work is preceded by nearly a decade of theatre making and directing at some of Australia's most renown companies, where she cut her teeth working alongside many of the country's finest actors.
A graduate of the prestigious Australian Film, Television & Radio School (AFTRS), Laura spent two years working between NYC and LA before settling in London. Her work has been supported by BFI Network, ScreenSkills (formerly Creative Skillset), BAFTA, Women in Film & TV, Raising Films, and Directors UK.
