Alison Parker is an award-winning Canadian film director and screenwriter living in Vancouver, British Columbia.

She began her career as a sound engineer and editor, then went on to build and run her own film studio, where she produced music videos, short films, and commercials. In 2010, Alison turned her focus to directing her own films.

Undeterred by the old adage, “Never work with children or animals,” Alison created a franchise of movies featuring children and animals. Her films have garnered a following of enthusiastic fans from all over the world and are available on iTunes, Amazon, ShortsHD, Vimeo on Demand and VHX through her distributor IndieCan Entertainment.

Alison’s credits include Jake & Jasper: A Ferret TaleThe Magic Ferret, which starred Jacob Tremblay in his first leading role, Santa’s Little Ferrets and Dude, Where’s My Ferret? featuring Mike Smith from The Trailer Park Boys.  These short films have screened at over 100 film festivals around the world, including TIFF Kids International Film Festival, DC Shorts, Whistler Film Festival, and many more.

In 2015, Alison began writing scripts.  Her screenplays range from family adventure films to gruesome horror comedies.  Most recently, her horror comedy Log has done well in several large screenwriting competitions, and a concept trailer is in the works to approach potential buyers at AFM.

Alison also hosts a weekly table read show on Twitch and runs a Discord community of 600+ screenwriters, directors, and actors.

Alison aims to move from directing shorts to finally directing her first feature film, hopefully for a script she wrote!
