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."

"If Not Now" Selected to LA Femme Festival

Our cast and producing team is getting ready to head to LA for the 2015 LA Femme International Film Festival. Our short film ‘If Not Now’ was selected by the festival and given a prime Friday evening screening slot in the festival’s main theatre in Beverly Hills. Our film tells the story of how one family deals with the dementia of an older parent.

Now in its 11th year, the LA Femme Film Festival showcases commercially viable films written, directed and produced by women.
