Alessia Francischiello was born and raised in Puglia, Italy but lived in Australia from 2013 till 2021 where she started her creative journey. She started in the editing room in Commercial and TV series then learned her place was on set, right next to the action, as Script Supervisor.
She studied Directing and Producing at the University of Sydney, then Screenwriting at Australian Film, TV and Radio School and then ended her studies with Directing and Screenwriting at the Academy of Cinema and TV Griffith (Rome, IT).
Alessia's perception of filmmaking evolves all around character's transformation with focus on inclusion and diversity. Her stories and style are inspired by profound personal change and they often reveal a dreamlike touch to shed a light on the hidden parts of human experiences. Alessia wishes to bring positive change in the film industry and to feed her desire to represent diverse stories and feminine power on screen.
