Second LA Festival for "If Not Now"

We're putting off shopping for Thanksgiving dinner to make flight plans to return to Los Angeles to escort our dramatic short "If Not Now" to its second LA festival -- the 2015 Woman Up Film Festival.

"This is a little overwhelming," said director Lori Kay Allred. "This was my first time directing a narrative film, and I was just trying to tell a very personal story since I've been touched by a parent dealing with dementia. I'm really honored that this film has touched so many people."
