SHORT BIO

In 2019, Agata was selected as one of the top 4 finalists for the In Development Drama Writer's Pitch Forum 2019 in Cannes with her project THE TRIBE.

She has worked with leading Polish production companies and broadcasters, such as Watchout Studio, Telemark, Canal+, and TVN. She is also a head writer of an upcoming TV series developed by Akson Studio Production Company. Most recently, the Netflix series SEXIFY is based on Agata Koschmieder’s idea, who co-created the show’s concept.

In the meantime, she is working on her feature film projects: SHIKSE, an intimate drama and DADDY COOL, a coming-of-age story. She is also working on a book adaptation of a bestselling book, HARM ME SOMEHOW by Jakub Żulczyk.

Agata’s debut script for TENDERNESS (dir. Emilia Zielonka) was selected for major film festivals around the world and won Best Short Film at Cellu l’art Short Film Festival in Germany and the Excellence Award for Best Picture at Busan International Short Film Festival in South Korea. REFLECTION, based on Agata’s second script, was produced by Studio Munka and starred critically-acclaimed actress Agata Buzek.
