CEO of Los Angeles based Painted Saint Entertainment, Kathleen Davison is an award-winning filmmaker with over 50 festival accolades to her credit, including best commercial (We Care Dental), best web series (Tech Bettys), best short (Effloresce), best pilot (The Passage), best feature (Primrose Lane), audience award (Effloresce, Primrose Lane, Tech Bettys), and best director (Effloresce, Primrose Lane).
Davison's work defines her penchant for women's history and empowerment, psychological thrillers, paranormal twists, and themes that dig deep into the human psyche.
As a commercial director, Kathleen is known for her innovative handling of sensitive subjects: from an entire cast attired in bubble wrap to illustrate the principles of sexual consent (ACLU's California Healthy Youth Act campaign), to the debilitating effects of disease (HAEA), to the unique emotional needs of the developmentally disabled when receiving health care (We Care Dental).
Kathleen is an avid spokesperson and festival panelist for women in film, gender parity, dispelling the myths which perpetuate ageism, and expanding diversity interests in media.
Davison’s education includes programs with the Sundance Institute (Sundance Fellow) and apprenticeships with Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Frank Darabont, Glen Morgan and James Wong. She holds a BA in theater from Penn State University.
