Industrious Family Films was started in 2017 by a sixteen-year-old girl with a vision of populating the moviemaking industry with good, Catholic movies. She understood the need to reclaim the art of moviemaking, and she grabbed the bull by the horns and started Industrious Family Films. Meet Mary Bowen and her devoted assistants: her family.
Director Mary Bowen has been making movies since 2015, premiering her first full length film, Outlaws of Ravenhurst, in 2018. Inspired by Navis Picture's The War of the Vandee, Mary Bowen knew that one day she would be a film-maker. In the wake of Outlaws of Ravenhurst, she was proud to premiere Max & Carlota in 2020 and Grisly Grisell in 2022. Released in 2023, a short film called Pelayo tells the story of the Asturian king and the defense of his homeland against Muslim invasion in 722. At the present, Mary looks forward to creating her first full budget film, Fabiola.
Faustina Bowen has been working on scripts for over 5 years, but her greatest passion for moviemaking springs from her love of acting. She starred as Mammy Able in Outlaws of Ravenhurst, Carlota in Max & Carlota, and Lady Whitburn in Grisly Grisell. Her last role was Our Lady of Covadogna in Pelayo. She rehearses lines and works on their delivery with the actors, leads the dry runs before shooting, keeps track of the scripts, and knows the script by heart which makes her a major asset during editing as well. She is currently kept busy storyboarding and writing the scripts for Fabiola.
