Alessandra Piccione holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Toronto and Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of Victoria. She began her writing career in the world of theatre, working for the Toronto-based Pirandello Theatre Society. After meeting New York writer Frank Canino, Alessandra became interested in the history of Angelina Napolitano, and teamed up with Canino to write the screenplay for what became the internationally award-winning film, LOOKING FOR ANGELINA. Inspired by her own experience, and the personal stories of her collaborators, Alessandra wrote the screenplay for THE CUBAN, which is now featured in the Core Collection at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Margaret Herrick Library. The film attracted an A-list calibur of talent, including Oscar Winner Louis Gossett Jr, Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo, Lauen Holly, Giacomo Gianniotti and Degrassi star, Ana Golja. Alessandra has written and produced three feature films under S.N.A.P. Films Inc., including THE CUBAN, THE COLOSSAL FAILURE OF THE MODERN RELATIONSHIP, and LOOKING FOR ANGELINA. In addition, she reunited with Frank Canino to pen WHAT WE HAVE LEFT, which won the Feature Screenplay award at the WILDSound International Screenplay Festival in Toronto, Canada. She has also written feature scripts for AMBI Pictures, as well as Ken Corday and NBC Studios.

Alessandra is currently living in her happy place, developing new creative projects for the company, intended to entertain, inspire, and bring more light into the world. She is a producer for all S.N.A.P. Films Inc.’s projects and is continuing her mission to tell high quality, entertaining and inspirational stories that resonate with audiences everywhere.
