APA Members' Short Films Selected for August 26 Arizona Filmmaker Showcase

APA Member Laurie Fagen's first short film, "L.N. Pane, P.I." has been selected for the 6 p.m. Sunday, August 26, Arizona Filmmaker Showcase at the FilmBar in Phoenix!!

This excerpt from her second crime fiction novel's audio book, "Dead Air," will be screened with four other local filmmakers starting at 6:00 p.m. It stars Debbie Jennings as "L.N. Pane, P.I.", a 1940s private investigator. The voice of "DW Thomas" (aka Don Woodard), a gent who needs the PI's help, is also heard in this excerpt. Laurie's short is scheduled to be played FIRST, so if you're late, you'll miss it!

Member Parco Richardson's "Altar Valley" will also be presented. In this short, Juan, a young father, mechanic, son and undocumented American man, is trying to live the American dream as clean as possible

The FilmBar is located in downtown Phoenix at 815 N. 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004.  Wine, beer, popcorn and other goodies are available for purchase at FilmBar; visit for more info.
