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. She signed a distribution deal with Raven Banner Entertainment, and is currently seeking financing.
Alison runs a popular Discord community called The Screenwriters Network, where she provides support and resources to over 2000 screenwriters across the globe. In 2019, Alison published the book “Titlepalooza Vol. 1 – 200 Title Prompts to Help Screenwriters Brainstorm Movie Ideas!“. She immensely enjoys helping other writers and takes great pride in watching them succeed.
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.
