About me
Hi! I'm Katiuscia Cancedda by birth, an Italian emerging playwright and screenwriter, but writing under the pseudonym of Katherine Luna Gate, and going by the name of Luna. I've been living in England since 1997 where I brought up two [very talented] daughters, Francesca and Eleonora, thanks to whom I mastered the skill of storytelling. I started writing poetry and short stories at the age of 12, have been journaling since the age of 15, failing to fulfill the dream of becoming a journalist. I define myself as “a word collector”. Although I have an aptitude for writing Drama and Thriller genres, I am also enjoying writing Comedy, but the themes remain the same: the Feminine, in all Its forms, and how we all relate to our Inner Child. I'd love to connect to UK-based filmmakers, directors and producers who, like me, are passionate about storytelling with such themes. Winner of the Best First-Time Screenwriter (Short) - Best Film Awards (February 2021) Silver Award for Best Short Script at the Independent Short Awards (February 2021) Semi-finalist at the Indie Short Fest (March 2021) Finalist at the Paris Play Film Festival (June 2021) Special Selection at the Trujillo Independent Film Festival (September 2021) Honourable Mention at the Mediterranean Film Festival Cannes (November 2021) Socials: https://the-dots.com/users/katherine-luna-gate-487540 https://www.linkedin.com/in/katherine-luna-gate-640161201/ Rep: https://www.smithscripts.co.uk/script_authors/gate_katherine-luna-gate/ Candidate Member of the Writers Guild of Great Britain (WGGB) Member of the UK Women in Film and Television (WFTV) Photography by Francesca Milano of Loud Foto

    Resigned - Proof of Concept videoWe are putting together some scenes for the proof of concept ready for Resigned's crowdfunding campaign. These are some stills from the two scenes we filmed on Sunday the 26th of June, put together and beautifully edited by the marvelous Lobke, one very patient producer and filmmaker, who is also assisting me while I find my feet into a brand new set of skills as a first-time director. All my gratitude goes to her and the amazing actors, Francesca Milano, Stewart Rome (https://www.instagram.com
  • The Animal Farm Adventure children project - Coming soon!
    The Animal Farm Adventure children project - Coming soon!I have spent the whole of this year building content for the launch of my YouTube channel. I worked with some very talented young artists along the way, some of whom are not on this platform but will be credited on the channel in due time. It's been a long process, great fun, and well worth the wait! Many thanks to Francesca Bindi for reading the stories so beautifully.
  • Defiant Beauty - THIIIRD Magazine
    Defiant Beauty - THIIIRD MagazineI was very lucky to be able to contribute to this issue of THIIIRD this year by interviewing the fabulous Zahra Swanzy, aka Swanzy, to find out how she got on with her new adventure to bring more beauty into this world. I trust everyone's got a copy, as this one's full of inspiring stories, not to be missed. I gained new skills and had lots of fun, so this is also to thank the team behind it. Luna
