Jan Stanton's THINK FAST to Be Featured Entry in 13th Annual LA Femme Film Festival

THINK FAST, a "will she-won't she" black comedy about a driven businesswoman who must choose to either hang-up on a wrong-number suicidal hotline caller -- or commit career suicide by missing a deal deadline, will be a featured short at the 13th Annual LA Femme International Film Festival in downtown Los Angeles, Oct. 19-22.

Written and executive produced by Jan Stanton and directed by Bridget Stokes, THINK FAST had its L.A. premiere at LA Shorts International Film Festival earlier this year, and also competed at the Vail Film Festival; it has also been selected for the SILICON VALLEY International Film Festival in December. The film won an award at the Moondance Film Festival and is about to premiere in Australia at the Sydney Indie Film Festival.

The plot revolves around Sara (Molly Stanton, Passions, Do Not Disturb), a type A talent executive maneuvering a deal that will make or break her career. With her loyal assistant Dan (TJ Power, Eat Pray Love, The Sapphires) playing devil's advocate, Sara must decide whether to move forward with the deal in the next 15 minutes, or respond to a desperate plea for help from a hysterical young woman who has mistakenly called Sara's number instead of the Suicide Prevention hotline. Will she make the right decision?

Jan Stanton comes from an award-winning background in marketing/social media, but has jumped feet first into the world of television creation with THINK FAST. "I think it is a springboard for a spin-off comic webseries: SARA BETTER THINK FAST," says Stanton. "It could also become a darker, twistier webseries RE

THINK FAST will screen on Thursday, October 19, 12:05 PM at the Regal Cinema Complex at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, 1000 West Olympic Blvd. Tickets are available at the box office or by visiting the festival's website
