Ashley Sanders is an Australian screenwriter. After working as a paramedic for almost 10 years, Ashley felt it was the right time to start writing again. His blog Orphic Flux has garnered a strong following across multiple platforms. He wrote his first feature screenplay, Bones of Ribbon, which covers some strong systemic issues prevalent in society. Bones of Ribbon has already earned him multiple awards, including Best Feature Screenplay and Best First Time Screenwriter at FilmCon, L.A. Film Awards, N.Y. Film Awards, Florence Film Awards, Rome Independent Film Awards, and Changing Face International Film Festival.
Ashley also participated in FilmCon's 24hr Screenwriting Challenge and won with his short script, Together We Fall.
