Jillian Walzer most recently was nominated for Best Actress in her short film, “Cowboy Joe” for which she was the lead actress, writer, and executive producer. The film continues to circulate on the festival market today and has won ‘Best Atlanta Short’ at Out On Film Festival, ‘Best Made In Georgia’ at Southern Shorts Awards, and was a Semi-Finalist at Venice Shorts Film Festival. “Cowboy Joe” is Jillian’s first foray into writing, producing, and starring in her own projects, and it also launched her production company, Off The Walz Productions.
For much of Jillian’s career she has performed on stage where she has had the pleasure of working with many local theatre companies around Atlanta. Favorite roles include Tina in “Tony and Tina’s Wedding”, Mary in “Laughing Stock”, Lou in “In Lieu of Flowers” and can be seen often ‘playing out her funny’ as one of Sketchworks Comedy MainStage actors, Atlanta’s premier sketch comedy troupe.
Next up, Jillian is in pre-production with her sophomore project, an off-balance romantic comedy, “Hit or Miss.”
