Rachel Thomas-Medwid took home the award for Best Screenplay (Unproduced) for “The Lost Opera” at the  Sherman Oaks Film Festivalin 2018.  But she didn’t stop there!  She returned with “The Squirrels in the Attic” at Film Invasion Los Angeles 2020, which took home the Audience Award for Short Film and year later she was back at Film Invasion Los Angeles 2021 with “In The Company of Crows,” again taking home an award!

I’m super proud to add that “The Squirrels in the Attic” will join season 5 of the Discover Indie Film TV series, likely coming this March.  If you want to watch other superb indie shorts just go to the Discover Indie Film TV Series on Amazon Prime Video.
