Well slap her bum and call her Shirley, Annie Waits only went and won Best Dramedy at the Snake Alley Festival of Film, over in Iowa on the Mississippi River.

Written by Chris Anastasi and the directorial debut for Marnie Paxton-Harris, Annie Waits follows the story of lust and disappointment, as a twenty-something waits for her adult life to begin.

The festival is dedicated to showcasing the best short films from around the world. Films screen at the beautifully restored Capitol Theatre in the heart of downtown Burlington.

We’re thrilled that the film is resonating with people around the world.
