Raf Santana

I am an award-winning screenwriter with a track record that includes two consecutive BAFTA Award nominations, a Kodak Award for Outstanding Cinematic Achievement, TCM prize and the Interfilm Berlin Film Festival (Winner) amongst others. My career has spanned major film markets in the UK, Europe, and Los Angeles, where I have enjoyed working both as an independent and studio-level producer and screenwriter. My projects have reached audiences globally, with notable work across Europe, the UK, China, Africa, Middle East and the US.

I hold a Master’s Degree from Cambridge University and also graduated from the prestigious EAVE postgraduate program. Earlier in my career, I was a BBC-trained script editor and participated in numerous international workshops, including Arista, the New Producer's Scheme, New Directions, as well as international programs run by the British Council and BFI.

I am currently available for film and television commissions, rewrites, polishes, and consulting roles. My extensive background and multi-faceted expertise equip me to contribute uniquely and effectively to a diverse array of projects.
