Biography

Greta Bellamacina is a British poet, actress and filmmaker.

She was born in London and made her acting debut in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fireat the age of 13. She trained at RADA where she performed a variety of stage and film roles before going on to do a B.A. in English at King’s College London. 

 

She released her first documentary The Safe House A Decline of Ideas in the UK in May 2016. The film, which was included in BAFTA’s long list that year, was a love letter to the public libraries and an appeal against their closure.

 

Greta wrote, directed and played the lead in Hurt By Paradise, her first feature film. The film follows two women who do not fit into conventional society and their unexpected friendship. It is a love letter to Bohemian London life, and will screen at Marche du Cinema in Cannes in May 2019 and other film festivals later in the year. 

 

She has also collaborated with actor/director Bonnie Wright on 4 short films which were launched in LA as part of Women in Cinema.

 

Greta was short-listed as the Young Poet Laureate of London in 2014 and since then her poetry has gone on to be acclaimed internationally. Her most recent book Selected Poems (2015-2017) published by New River Press in the UK is set for Spanish language publication by Valapaiso Ediciones in April 2019. 

 

Selected Poems (2015-2017) confirmed Greta as one of the most significant female voices under 30 in British poetry. The book gathers together her sold-out 2016 collection Perishing Tame - “a dazzling meditation on motherhood, female identity, ennui, and love” - with 14 new poems from 2017 including the anthemic Tomorrow’s Women, which was turned into a film for British Vogue. 

She also edited Smear in 2017, a book of contemporary feminist poetry.

 

Pierpaolo Piccioli recently commissioned Greta to write ten love poems, published to coincide with his FW19 collection for Valentino.The project was universally acclaimed as bringing the worlds of fashion and poetry closer together.
