SCREENWRITING


As a spec screenwriter, Fi Dieter's specialty is to craft inspirational, character-driven stories that feature arrogant, quirky, socially-rejected underdogs learning humility and finding a sense of belonging.

The importance of authenticity is also a big theme for Fi. She is drawn to stories that pose thought-provoking arguments on the importance of being coherent with our words, thoughts, and actions, which in her view is extremely relevant to the times.

Fi Dieter's work also explores complicated family dynamics, and multi-cultural / mixed-ethnicity characters who struggle with their sense of Self. Magical elements are often woven into her action as a way of creatively portraying life through a specific character's point of view. Fi is known for adding hints of witty, satiric dialogue, and twisting scenes to set up / deliver a strong sense of catharsis.

"Stand Up Therapy"
