Author Bio: Since 2014, sixteen of my scripts (feature and short) have between them clocked up 86 screenplay competition wins, 45 of these being 1st place wins. I have a boutique consulting service called "How to Win Short Screenplay Contests" (see www.stephenmhunt.net).

The subject of my directorial debut was my multi-award winning short screenplay "Believers". This was shot in October 2016 on location at West Cork, Ireland. It has kicked off its film festival adventure in 2017 with 3 "Best 1st Time Director" awards, 7 other awards and chalked up 5 additional nominations. Consequently, I've now won film awards for writing, directing and producing.

Emmy Award winner Miguel Guerreiro filmed my short script "Early Release". It subsequently achieved official selection status at 24 film festivals and won 10 awards.

In August 2017, I will be shooting my short script "Jezabel" on location in France to be filmed in French with a French cast & crew.

I'll then be directing my short script "Chicago's Iago" at Chicago, London and Morocco. This will be produced by Kissing Gate Media, Green Girl Productions and Jungle Productions 2.

My short screenplay "Death's Lady Love" is in production with Sanford Films in conjunction with Kissing Gate Media. It'll be premiered on Halloween 2017 in Maine, USA.

I've optioned two feature scripts and a third is subject to a Shopping Agreement. I have five shorts slated for production and was recently commissioned to write a feature to be shot in Nebraska.

Over the past few years I've accepted invitations to be a jury member of the Paris Art & Movie Awards, 11th Marbella International Film Festival, The Monkey Bread Tree Awards, The Metres International Film Festival and the London Indie Film Festival.

I'm an English published, produced and award-winning playwright turning to film. Most of my staged works featured Royal Shakespeare Company actors and include an award winning regional tour.
