In Case of Emergency – Women & Comedy in Film

21 Sep

Indie Comedy


Dear Folks,

The world premiere of IN CASE OF EMERGENCY will be at the 2017 Bushwick Film Festival on Thursday, October 12th at 6:30 p.m. In fact, “In Case of Emergency” will open the festival and screen at the House of Yes. Directed by Stefanie Sparks, it stars Phoebe Robinson (of 2 Dope Queens), Jenni Ruiza, Annapurna Sriram and Andrea Morales. And I have a small part in this hysterical movie, too!

If you live in NYC, please pay a visit to the Bushwick Film Festival and if you are outside of NYC, look for “In Case of Emergency” at a film festival near you.
