Giacomo Arrigoni

I am Italian writer-director member AIR3 – Italian Directors Guild and WGI – Writers Guild Italia.

In the last 14 years as a Creative and Filmmaker, I have worked in Italy, Germany, France, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Greece and in the United States.

With my short and feature films I got more than 30 awards in international film festivals, including a screening at the Chamber of Deputies in Rome, a Best Feature film in Miami and Houston, a nomination for an Italian Golden Globe and a selection in a special section of the Silver Ribbons Awards (Nastro d’Argento).

Some of the brands I have worked for include: SONY, NETFLIX, Discovery Italia, Iervolino Entertainment, Paradox Studios, Mondadori, Google, Microsoft, Fox Crime, Vodafone, Red Bull, Swatch and Adidas.

As a scriptwriter, I have been chosen to co-write “State of Consciousness” (2020), a psychological thriller with Emile Hirsch, directed by Markus Stokes and produced by Paradox Studios and Iervolino Entertainment.

My TV series projects have been selected at SerienCamp in Munich, at Série Series in Paris, at the Raindance Film Festival in London and at the Maison des Scènaristes of the Cannes Film Festival.

In 2020 I directed the documentaries “Spicy Calabria”, presented at the Rome MIA Market in the selection Italians Doc It Better, and “Resilient Warriors: Jose Antonio”, about the revolution of syntropic farming in Brasil. The documentary got a Merit Award at the Awareness Film Fest and several international official selections.

In 2017 my web series #Goldfish, about the relationship between teenagers and social networks, produced by Discovery Italia, has been presented at the Giffoni Film Festival. The series has been aired on Italian TV channel 9 and is available on Discovery’s digital platform DPlay.

My first feature film The Rule of Lead (2014) won several international awards and is available around the world on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes and Vimeo on Demand.

I write scripts in English and Italian for TV series, web series and feature films.
I have a penchant for supernatural thrillers, ensemble dramas and coming-of-age teenage stories.
