Alexandra Arlango has worked across the British film and TV industries since 1997.
Starting in distribution, she learned the most important lesson of her long career: Know your audience. Helping Michael Kuhn set up Qwerty Pictures in 1999, she discovered her passion for development and her talent for working with writers, and began to apply the lesson she learnt in distribution to story development with great success.
By the time Alexandra left Qwerty she had co-produced five feature films including the Oscar winning The Duchess starring Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes. Across her career in features, she worked with many new and established writers, including David O. Russell, Jack Thorne and Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan & Marlon Smith. She has been instrumental in supporting the career of Emmy winner Tom Rob Smith, and, more recently, through The Brit List, of showcasing the then emerging voices of now established writers such as Joe Barton (Giri/Haji, Encounter, which appeared on The Brit List as Invasion) and Lauren Sequira (Domino Day, Gangs of London).
Alexandra is determined to keep The Brit List the go to place for producers and buyers to find new and exciting UK screenwriting talent.
