Alison Parker is a Canadian screenwriter, director, and author, currently residing in Los Angeles, California. She has directed and produced several award-winning short films that screened at nearly 200 film festivals around the world, most notably TIFF Kids, DC Shorts, and Whistler Film Festival.
Alison enjoys writing comedy and all its subgenres, especially horror comedy. Her writing has been described as “gut-busting hilarious” and “bat-shit crazy”. Her horror comedy “The Fat Pact” was optioned in 2019. “Log” (about a Log that springs to life and kills people) won the Grand Prize at the Canadian Film Festival and awarded a $10K development grant from Harold Greenberg Fund. In September of 2019, Alison’s action comedy “Agent Thumb” won Best Adapted Screenplay at the prestigious Burbank International Film Festival.
Alison immensely enjoys helping other writers and takes great pride in watching them succeed. She owns and operates The Screenwriters Network, the largest screenwriting Discord server in the world, where she provides support and resources to over 5000 screenwriters. She is the host of the Screenwriters Network Podcast, and the Contest Director of the Killer Shorts Horror Short Screenplay Competition.
Alison’s goal is to sit back in the director’s chair and bring one of her screenplays to life. Until then, she can be found wrangling her Brussels Griffons, listening to synthwave, and fishing in the dark.
