"If Not Now" Goes International...Twice

The 3rd Annual China Women’s Film Festival has selected ‘If Not Now’ to compete in its short film competition in Beijing, China in late November 2015. This festival’s mission is to support women filmmakers in China and around the world.

Also, our film has won Best Dramatic Film from the Cinevana Istanbul Film Festival in Turkey.

"Our film started out with such humble beginnings," said producer Scott Takeda. "We wanted to tell a simple story about a family dealing with dementia because our director Lori's mother had it. And now, this film is going to be showing in China and has won in Istanbul."
