Director Biography - Federica Brizzi

Born in a small town near Rome, Italy, Federica's filmmaking journey began thanks to a Screenwriting class at John Cabot University, where she graduated summa cum laude in 2015. After producing two self-written short films while studying for her BA, she decided to further pursue her passion by enrolling in a Creative Skillset approved MA in Film & TV Production at the University of York, England, where she received her formal training in all steps of film production. Her graduation work, "Dating Mr. Darcy", was met with great enthusiasm and received one of the highest marks ever awarded by the department. In March 2017 she was invited to a special screening of the best student work at the University of York, featuring Dating Mr. Darcy.
