Kristina Jilly

Profession: Writer
Country: Hungary

A Hungarian-Australian writer, Kristina fell into screenwriting while working in the corporate sector and was immediately hooked. Since then she has written drama series for companies such as HBO Europe and RTL Television. She’s had extensive experience working in writers’ rooms on her own original material as well as on TV shows such as ALTAR GIRLS, AMONG FRIENDS and LOVE ME NOW, where she held the position of Story Editor. Kristina has projects in development with production companies in the U.K. and Europe in the crime, thriller and historical drama genres. She was a finalist in the Creative Screenwriting Competition in 2020 and the East Series Pitch at the Odessa International Film Festival in 2019. Keen to see more flawed and complex female-lead characters on screen, Kristina established an organization to develop stories by and about women in the region. With an MA in screenwriting from Royal Holloway, University of London, Kristina is currently also working as a teacher at FHOÖ university in Austria. She is represented by Fiona Grant at Dench Arnold.
