Asmara Bhattacharya

writer Stone; 8-time AFF Screenwriting Competition Second Rounder; creator DickFlicks.net

A produced screenwriter and playwright, Asmara Bhattacharya’s scripts have placed multiple times at AFF and Nicholl as well as in many other competitions.  Last year, she co-produced a staged reading of “Land of Enchantment” for veteran filmmaker Pen Densham at Santa Fe Independent Film Festival.  A trusted sounding board and consultant for industry professionals, she is developing a webseries and several short films.  Her website, DickFlicks.net, was born of a late-night gym session diatribe about the paucity of women onscreen.   Dedicated fans caught her this summer in “Independence Day: Resurgence” and NBC’s “The Night Shift” – for one glorious half-second each.
