L.A. Film Festival Exclusive: 'Mad Men' Star Kiernan Shipka Loves Making Films In Clip From 'Fan Girl'

We’ve seen “Mad Men” star Kiernan Shipka grow up on the hit AMC show, but with the series saying goodbye this past spring, the teenage actress is now spreading her wings with some interesting indie films. Earlier this year “One And Two” hit the Berlin International Film Festival, and now comes “Fan Girl,” and today we have an exclusive clip from the picture.

Co-starring Kara Haywood (“Moonrise Kingdom“) and newcomer Joshua Boone, the story follows Telulah Farrow, an ironic high school cool girl who has two obsessions in life: pop punk music and making films. With just a few short days to come up with a killer final film project that could bring festival fame, Telulah gets a once in a lifetime chance to see her music idols in concert. She hatches a plan to bring her passions together, accompanied by smart mouthed wing-girl Jamie, and underachieving, over-energetic film class partner Darvan. And as you’ll see in the scene below, at least from the start, Darvan isn’t the most inspiring person Telulah can have in her corner.

Also featuring the pop punk band All Time Low—who also make a significant contribution to the soundtrack—and directed by Paul Jarrett, “Fan Girl” premieres at the L.A. Film Festival today.
