New Edinburgh International Film Festival Screenwriter-in-Residence!

Nicole Taylor

The new Edinburgh International Film Festival Screenwriter-in-Residence has been announced!

Nicole Taylor, a Glasgow-born screenwriter, will be working with the four Edinburgh universities over this academic year. Through the residency, Nicole will have a chance to speak with Edinburgh-based researchers about their work. These conversations may not only inspire new work for Nicole, but will offer researchers a chance to engage members of the public with their work through the medium of film.

Nicole most recently wrote BBC One’s three-part series Three Girls about the Rochdale grooming scandal, which premiered to outstanding reviews and a powerful audience response. Nicole also wrote the multi-BAFTA nominated single drama, The C Word, which starred Sheridan Smith. Speaking about her appointment as Screenwriter-in-Residence, Nicola said:

I am so delighted and grateful to have been chosen as the EIFF’s Screenwriter in Residence. I can’t think of a more valuable opportunity for a screenwriter than access to the great brains and great work of Edinburgh’s universities. I’m so excited about the year of discussions that lie ahead, which I hope will be touch paper for new ideas and new work.

Researchers, and those who work with them, will have the opportunity to meet Nicole through Beltane Network events and 1:1 meetings. More details will be announced soon but, meanwhile, if you already know you would like to meet with Nicole, please get in touch!
