Asmara Bhattacharya

writer Stone; script reader; contributor Final Draft, Script Magazine
Asmara Bhattacharya is a filmmaker and playwright, a script reader for Austin Film Festival and other contests, and a film screener for Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. She writes for Final Draft’s blog and Script Magazine, interviewing the pros and sharing tips that are never the least bit snarky. A writer with placements in many competitions, she is also active on set as everything from director to producer to consultant to camera operator. Her website, www.dickflicks.net, was born of a late-night gym session diatribe about the paucity of women onscreen. Dedicated fans caught her in Independence Day: Resurgence and NBC’s The Night Shift – for one glorious half-second each.
