Alice Bell


One of Australia’s most sought-after writers, Alice Bell’s debut screenplay was the multi-award-winning feature film Suburban Mayhem, directed by Paul Goldman, which screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, and later at Toronto International Film Festival. The film won an AWGIE for Best Original Screenplay, and was nominated for a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, an AFI Award and an IF Award.

Alice was one of the original writers of Channel Ten's police rescue drama, Rush (Southern Star Productions). She was also a writer on the second season of Spirited, for which she received an AWGIE nomination, and a script producer and writer on Channel Ten’s hit adaptation, Puberty Blues, for which she received an AACTA nomination for Best Television Screenplay.

Alice wrote for The Slap, an adaptation of Christos Tsiolkas' best-selling novel, produced by Matchbox Pictures, which won the 2012 AWGIE for Best TV Mini-Series Adaption and in 2015 she was the creator and writer/producer of the ABC’s critically acclaimed The Beautiful Lie, which was nominated for an AWGIE award and 9 AACTA awards.

In 2018 Alice ran an ongoing mentoring project for 18 emerging female screenwriters, Smart for a Girl – Roar with longtime collaborator/producer Imogen Banks, a development lab funded by Screen Australia’s Gender Matters: Brilliant careers program.

Alice is currently working in Los Angeles on Amazon’s 10-part series Expatriates as writer/creator and co-showrunner for Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films.
