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 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. In 2015 she both co-wrote and script-produced The Beautiful Lie (AWGIE nominated) with Endemol.
Alice recently ran a mentoring project for 18 emerging female screenwriters, Smart for a Girl – Roar with Imogen Banks, a development lab funded by Screen Australia’s Gender Matters program. She has several film and television projects in development including the feature The Circus with director Emma Freeman, and the series Expatriates for Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films, which has just been picked up by Amazon.
