Founder & Producer @ PAGURO FILM

BFI Network x BAFTA Crew | Biennale Cinema College & EGF alumna | Festival Director

I'm a Film producer and film educator - based in UK with credits at A and B rated festivals and a strong expertise in low and medium budget production. I have been active in the creative industries since 2011, collaborating for the main Italian film and advertising production companies such as THINK CATTLEYA, FREEMANTLE and DISNEY.

In 2018, after moving to the UK, I founded PAGURO FILM and produced the short film MOTHS TO FLAME (2018 - Studio Universal Prize at Alice Nella Città and Italian Silver Ribbon awarded) and FULCI FOR FAKE (2019) selected at Mostra Internazionale del Cinema di Venezia and screened at Sitges Fantastic Film Festival.

As an educator, I collaborate with the British Council and the Civic School of Cinema in Milan, delivering workshops on movies production and distribution. Together with the BFI Film Audience Network, the Italian Institute of Culture and the Italian Vice Consul in Birmingham in Jan 2021 I launched MARCELLO the first Italian Film Festival in the Midlands.

In June 2020, the Biennale of Venice selected my project IN BETWEEN\THE HIVE directed by Marco Pellegrino for the Biennale Cinema College program.
The feature, part of the European Genre Forum 2021, was pitched at the TALLIN BLACK NIGHTS in the last November.

In the last years I collaborated with the Cheltenham International Film Festival, the Abertoir International horror film festival, and I took part in different programs supported by Creative England. Since 2020 I'm EWA member and part of Women in Film and TV (UK).
