Aleksandra Sykulak.



Agent: Marc Simonsson

Aleksandra is a BAFTA-winning screenwriter working across fiction, animation and games.

Aleksandra was born and raised in Warsaw. Her writing occupies the space between tragedy and comedy – always touching on real, tangible feelings, but often through obscure, slightly ironic scenarios. She’s particularly drawn to outsider stories, queer love stories and characters battling different stages of existential crisis.

Aleksandra is a graduate of The National Film and Television School, where she wrote numerous short films, many of which screened at festivals around the world. Her animated short Crab Day received a BAFTA for Best British Short Animation. A fiction short she co-wrote, Tree of Many Faces, was shortlisted for The Yugo BAFTA Student Awards.

Aleksandra is also the author of a graphic crime novel El Diablo and the director of a short documentary In A Knot, about her grandparents’ turbulent marriage, which premiered at an Oscar-qualifying Kraków Film Festival. She is currently developing both live action and animated projects for TV and for film.
