Watch The Book of Ruth

More awards! More Festivals!

Hello everyone,

Busy months ahead! 

I’m happy to report that The Book of Ruth has three (that I currently know of!) upcoming screenings between now and the end of the year! 

Every time I think the circuit is over for this one, there are some surprises! Thank you all for being with us for what looks like a 2.5 years in the festival circuit.

There are plans for the day after, and I’ll share in due time 🙂 I hope to be able to bring the film to as many of you as possible.

But before I talk about the upcoming screenings, I’m also happy to report I’ll be heading back to Cranston, RI in October for the wonderful Sene Film Festival, as But I’m a Shoe is nominated for Best Screenplay. A true honor. I’m moved by all the love that has already been shown to this script about a girl who turns herself into a shoe!

As for The Book of Ruth, first, you’ll be able to catch the film at the South Dakota Film Festival on 9/17. We were already informed that the film won Best Narrative Short and I’m beyond grateful! Sadly I won’t be able to attend the festival, but it looks like a wonderful program!

Next stop is Beverley Hills for the LadyFilmmaker Film Festival! The film will screen on 9/25 and I’ll do my very best to be there!

And then on 11/5 I will be in Indianapolis for the Ann Katz Festival of Books & Arts. A whole evening dedicated to The Book of Ruth with 30-40 minutes Q&A to follow. I expect a lively conversation with Michael Abrams about representation, storytelling, and so much more!

If you’re in either of these events, come and say hi! All details about tickets and show times can be found here.

As always – more soon!


But I’m a Shoe Live Read at DITHFF!

Hello all!

Headed back to Waco next week, and it’s a true treat since Deep in the Heart is one of the most fun film festivals I’ve been to with The Book of Ruth!

Tickets are now on sale for the live read event which will include my comedy short script – But I’m a Shoe, as well as four more scripts, all to be read by local actors.

Get your tickets for Saturday, 7/20 here.

Come for the art, stay for the fun!

On a personal note I’d also say that Juliet Landau and Deverill Weekes, who are lovely humans and whom I met at the Poppy Jasper Film Festival, will also be in attendance to screen their film A Place Among the Dead, as well as a career talk with Juliet.

So the Texan based Buffy fans among you should really come!

Happy Friday all!

But I’m a Shoe

Hello friends,

It’s been a minute.

Partially because a lot of the work is being done behind the scenes.

But The Book of Ruth won Best Short Dramedy at the wonderful Sedona International Film Festivaland we have a few more festivals before we conclude a terrific, award winning festival run for which I’m incredibly grateful.

But I’m also hard at work on two new projects that I’m very excited about, one of the two is But I’m a Shoe, a short script for a would-be animated short.

Very very happy to say that the script got accepted into the screenplay competition at one of my favorite film festivals – Deep in the Heart, in Waco, TX, where The Book of Ruth won Best Family Short last year.

I’m thrilled to head back to DITHFF to share this script with an audience for the first time, by way of a live reading. Details to follow, but what a great place to “premiere” it! 

Stay tuned!


New Year, New Festivals

Happy New Year everyone!

You’ll be able to catch The Book of Ruth multiple times this year, both online and in-person!

Especially excited to screen in London, a city I love very much!

Best Family Short at DITHFF *** UK Premiere

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a joyful and safe summer!

I’m thrilled to announce that The Book of Ruth has won the Best Family Short Jury Award at the Deep in the Heart Film Festival. 

I was in Texas for what was a wonderful festival, adopted by a lovely community of filmmakers and people who are passionate about art and creativity, and we were very humbled by the win and by the fact that the film was welcomed with open arms and so much love.

I got to give an acceptance speech for the first time ever, so it was very unplanned. Nonetheless, here it is:


If you’re in Texas, you can still watch the film online through 7/31 right here.

The virtual edition of the festival also included a Q&A with multiple filmmakers and I was glad I got to take a part in that. You can watch it here.


I’m also thrilled to announce The Book of Ruth will be making its UK premiere in September at the Exit 6 Film Festival.



The event will be mostly virtual but there will be one physical day and we’ll make sure to have representatives there! 

Excited to finally make it across the pond and can’t wait to share the film with our friends in the UK!
