Zilla and Zoe


Zilla and Zoe

Scalise Pictures is an independent filmmaking company started by a female filmmaker who wants to see a return to great storytelling in the film industry ... and more women behind the camera!

Our first feature film, ZILLA AND ZOE, was the opening night feature at the Portland Film Festival, and won the Audience Choice Award for Best Film at the Seattle Local Sightings Film Festival. It is currently working its way through the festival circuit.

ZILLA AND ZOE was 100% crowdfunded by awesome backers who wanted to make a quirky indie comedy with strong female leads. Thank you to our backers for making this film a reality!
