Director for film and television

Raised in Rome, Los Angeles and the English countryside, Francesca Gregorini brings a worldly, passionate and unique sensibility to her filmmaking. Her character-driven films are visceral and darkly humorous, stylistically bold, with undertones of the magical/surreal. 

A Brown University graduate with a Theatre Arts major, Francesca sold scripts to both HBO and Paramount before co-helming her directorial debut Tanner Hall (Rooney Mara), which was an official selection at the Toronto Film Festival (2009). Her latest film Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes (Kaya Scodelario, Jessica Biel, Alfred Molina) was selected for the US Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival 2013.

Francesca recently directed on the second series of Humans for Kudos/Channel 4/AMC and on anthology series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams for Channel 4 and Amazon Studios. She is currently directing and episode of new Netflix series Chambers, starring Uma Thurman and will go on to direct the second series of hit BBC America/BBC One series Killing Eve
