Shanice Kamminga is a Dutch director and Nicholl Fellowship semi-finalist screenwriter. Initially focussing on acting, she appeared in TV series such as Who’s In Who’s Out.

After graduating from the University of Amsterdam she started a blog about moving to LA and the visa issues along the way. The blog quickly garnered followers and press attention, but more importantly rekindled her love for writing. She wrote her first screenplay, which got selected for Holland’s prestigious screenwriting event Het Schrijfpaleis.

Shanice moved to LA in 2013, where she wrote and co-produced a short film named If. The film got a theatrical release in Dutch arthouse theaters and Shanice switched fully to writing and directing. She submitted her first feature screenplay to The Academy’s Nicholl Fellowship – the Oscars’ competition for new screenwriters – where it became a semi-finalist.

Shanice is currently developing a TV show, while also concepting, writing and directing projects for clients like Philips, KPN and FrieslandCampina.
