"A crowd-pleaser for the generation that grew up on midnight movies, underground B&W comics, indie music and thrift store shopping!" - Ben Umstead, Twitch Film "A new spin on a post-apocalyptic film...a fun flick with humor in all the right spots, drama in others and overall a quality balance to the narrative" - Mark Bell, Film Threat "...a wonderfully photographed comedy and one that takes a startlingly feminine look at a genre that is often times the fodder for explosions, large amounts of bullets and far too few true flesh and blood characters." - Joshua Brunsting, CriterionCast

Best Friends Forever is a post-apocalyptic Thelma and Louise, where the bond of two badass girlfriends can survive anything, even the end of the world.
Harriet (writer/director Brea Grant) is a perpetually perky comic-book artist who has hit a dead-end in Los Angeles. She drags her party-girl BFF Reba (co-writer Vera Miao) along for a road trip to Austin, Texas. Just as they pull out of town, a series of atomic bombs explode across the U.S., and the duo's priorities have to shift from boys and beer to surviving the apocalypse.
A dark comedy, heartfelt road trip and pulse-pounding disaster movie wrapped in one irresistible package, Best Friends Forever redefines the phrase "girl power" and asks the question: when faced with the end of the world - what is most important to you?
