LUCA FERRARA

I was born in Brescia (northern Italy), where I graduated from the Liceo Classico “Arnaldo” and later moved to London to attend the Westminster Film School, with a specialism in advanced screenwriting and producing. 

I am currently active as a short film and commercials director, writer and producer, while also working as an assistant producer on fiction and documentary features. I also write feature-lenght scripts. 

CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT
& FILM FINANCING

I have extensive experience in creative development, script reading and editing. 

I have also assisted with the financing of several fiction and documentary feature film projects, taking part in international co-production markets such as AFM, EFM, Marché du Film de Cannes and MIA. 

FESTIVALS
& FILM PROGRAMMING

I have founded and directed the international Brixia Film Festival (BRIFF) in my hometown of Brescia and have lead the Westminster Film Festival in 2018 and 2019, returning as Jury President in 2020. 

While President of the UWSU Film Society I presented a complete programme of screenings and events (including the 2019 Student Cinema Day), which was awarded several prizes and awards nominations in London and the United Kingdom. 

I now continue to collaborate with a number of international short film festivals and screenwriting competitions, including the 2021 Oudeis International Film Festival in Rome.
