In 2009 we finished post-production for Fiona's Script. The film had its world premiere at MethodFest in March of that year, garnering a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Giovannie Espiritu, and then went on to play at several US film festivals, including Frameline (SF), Outfest (LA), LA Femme, Reeling (Chicago), Qfest (Philadelphia) and Newfest (NY), and internationally at Iris Prize (Wales) and Festival Gay & Lesbian de Belgique (Belgium).
Fiona is a daydreamer who uses her screenwriting as an excuse to fantasize about reuniting with her ex, and to avoid her heartbroken, stagnant reality. A chance encounter with her friend Henna, who wants to produce a play, right when Fiona loses her job catalyzes Fiona's emergence from the comfortable bubble that was her life into more exciting territory.
But putting on the play means she has to finish the script... which becomes even more difficult when the dazzling 'L' decides to focus her charms on Fiona, challenging her to live in the present and let go of her past. Fiona's Script is a story about finding one's footing in life, and discovering the true meaning of love.
