From Peterborough to Cannes

Posted on May 25, 2023 in Latest

My original comedy feature Don’t Mention The War has been nominated for the third annual Wscripted Cannes Screenplay List in association with Mubi.

The script – an Anglo-German romcom that tackles false nostalgia and the legacy of Brexit, set in Peterborough and Berlin – features on a 12-strong list which was announced at this year’s 76th Cannes Film Festival.

Wscripted was launched in 2021 by Ellie Jamen with the aim of matching female storytellers with decision-makers. The all-female jury for the Cannes list were Mounia Meddour (Papicha, Houria), Funa Maduka (Waiting for Hassana) and Camille Griffin (Silent Night).

Congratulations to my fellow nominees!
