ABOUT ME

Chloë Bellande is a screenwriter and film editor based in North Hollywood, CA, born in Canada. She has a BA in Arts and Modern Languages from Concordia University and she was raised in a bilingual (French and Spanish) home. Her body of work includes self-financed features and shorts; mostly crime dramas and thrillers. Her film festival darlings, While The Village Sleeps, Will Of Fortune, and, Searching For Paradise, have won multiple awards and nominations for their screenplay and their original movie trailer. In 2016, Chloe won the Latin Canada Award for Best Director/Producer for her sustained achievements in the entertainment industry.

 

In 2018 she published the story of how she embraced failure and achieved transformational success in "Invincible", a collaborative book published by Elite Publishing - now an Amazon International Bestseller. 

After attending the Screencraft Residency Program with mentorship by A-list screenwriters, and winning multiple awards for her script "While The Village Sleeps", Chloe sold her property to 19 AD Productions.
