Paige Sciarrino founded Little Fighter Films in 2016 after she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Montclair State University's BFA Acting program. She knew that although acting was her first love and passion, she wasn't about to wait around for the phone to ring and wanted to produce her own work upon graduating. Inspired to create stories centered around imperfect but real, whole female characters, Little Fighter Films was born.

She wrote, produced, and starred in short films "Rolling" and "the blue light stays on". The latter won "Best Original Idea" at the Reale Film Festival and took home numerous nominations and awards at the New Jersey Film Awards, including "Best Female Filmmaker" and was then picked up for distribution and is available on Amazon Prime. "Where the Light Enters," her third short film, which she wrote, produced, starred in, as well as directed, deals with her real life experiences of being an actress who recently suffered from third degree burns that left visible scars on her hands, neck, and face. The film was a finalist at the New York Short Film Festival and an Honorable Mention at the Blackbird Film Festival and Semi Finalist at the Flickers Rhode Island and received nothing but positive reviews.

Based in NY/NJ, Paige Sciarrino is an Italian & Syrian award-winning actor and filmmaker, but is also an entrepreneur. She founded Normal Ave, a 501(c)3 non-profit theater company based in Hell's Kitchen NYC and Writer in the Dark, an award winning film collective based in NJ. 

Her latest film, Megan Is A Good Girl, is a short-to-feature proof of concept horror film currently in pre-production. Read about it HERE
