Writer/Director Melissa Dalley is an Austin based filmmaker. Working on indie films and multi-million dollar features alike, she has learned filmmaking from the ground up. She produced the award-winning film LOVES HER GUN, which had its World Premiere at the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival, winning the Louis Black/Lone Star Award for best film made in Texas that year. THE BIG SPOON (AFF 2016) was the first film to be made under the SnowLion Pictures banner. Most recently, Melissa's script SHORTHAND was a Second Rounder at the Austin Film Festival and a Screencraft Screenwriting Fellowship Quarter-Finalist. The dark comedy featuring a female anti-hero will be shot this year in south Texas.
