CATHERINE DUDLEY-ROSE’S SHORT FILM “PARALLEL CHORDS (OVERTURE)” TO SCREEN AT LA FEMME INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, OCTOBER 15 – 18TH

Autobiographical film picking up steam on festival circuit


LOS ANGELES - “PARALLEL CHORDS (OVERTURE)”, the award-winning short film produced, written and directed by Catherine Dudley-Rose will screen at the LA Femme Film Festival, Thursday, October 15, 12PM at Laemmle’s Music Hall Theater, 9036 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills. Now in its 11th year, the festival is a premiere film festival celebrating, supporting and advancing content creation by Women Producers, Writers, and Directors from around the world.
Fresh off a recent win at the Middlebury New Filmmaker’s Festival, the highly-acclaimed movie most recently won the Jury Award for Excellence in Music at the South Dakota Film Festival, the Curator’s Award at the prestigious Post Alley Film Festival in Seattle, and screened at the Reno Tahoe International Film Festival and Hudson Valley Film Festival, among others. It will also screen at San Pedro Film Festival (October 9 -11) and the Oscar qualifying St. Louis International Film Festival (November 5- 15).

“PARALLEL CHORDS (OVERTURE)” is the true story of a young violinist struggling to assert her individuality amidst the intense pressure of her pianist father and the formidable weight of her own musical ability.

Dudley-Rose says, “Although we've had the film screen in Tahoe, the upcoming west coast screenings will be the first in the LA area. This makes me so very happy because we have a number of integral people who worked on the film in the LA area who have yet to see it on the big screen. Our violinist Emerson Joy Millar, our poster artist Susanne Longo, our editor Patrick Lawrence, who moved from St. Louis, and of course, our amazing lead actor Bjorn Johnson."

The film stars Rachel Ann and veteran actor Bjorn Johnson, with cinematography by Hannah Radcliff.
