Writer Biography - Ciara O'Rourke

Whilst primarily working in the industry as a Production Designer, I have had the pleasure of writing since a young age. Having been selected to go to retreat with the Arvon writing group at Ted Hughes' Lumb Bank home amongst various writing groups and opportunities.

It was only through my work with the BFI and NFTS film academy years later (and subsequent freelance career) that I realised that I could apply my previous writing to screen.

Having been selected for the 2021 BFI Short Film Development Programme as a writer for my in-developement short 'Gum', I am raring to take a further plunge into the world of screenwriting.
