MEET THE FILMMAKER

KRISTINE GEROLAGA is a Filipinx-American actor and filmmaker whose mission is to tell stories centering people who are often excluded from mainstream media. She hails from Vallejo, a town made famous by the Zodiac Killer, which is most likely why she is so obsessed with the darkest parts of the human mind. 

 

She currently resides in Los Angeles where she writes and directs genre, dramedy, and a ton of sketch comedy (but honestly, she loves it all). She is critically acclaimed: Vulture called her a “creator to watch.” Friends refer to her as their biggest cheerleader. And an Airbnb host called her “so sweet, very clean, and an ideal guest.”

Her work has been featured on TIFFxInstagram Shorts Fest, The Future of Film is Female, THR, Inc., BuzzFeed,  DirectedByWomen, ATTN:, Amazon Prime/ FireTV,  ALTER, Rappler, and Vulture.
