Heidi has just finished the film festival circuit for her US-based company, Personae Entertainment Pictures’ first feature film, Darcy, which she co-directed, produced and acted in (now streaming on Apple TV, Hulu, Amazon Prime & Herflix.com), and is excited to be developing Love & Vodka—which will be her first feature film solo directing debut.
