Her most recent short film, How to Survive a Breakup, is available on Amazon and Condé Nast’s The Scene. The short won the Audience Award at the 2015 LA ComedyFest and screened to sold-out crowds at the 2016 Santa Barbara International Film Festival and Palm Springs International Shortsfest which led to partnerships with Tribeca Films and United Airlines. Adar then directed/executive produced/co-wrote the web series, Cannabis Moms Club, which was lauded by NPR as one of “The Best Web Series on the Internet”.
