Marina Rice Bader founded Soul Kiss Films in 2009, an independent company dedicated to producing compelling movies with a unique focus on the female experience. She executive produced Elena Undone (2010) and A Perfect Ending (2012) and went on to write/direct/produce Anatomy of a Love Seen (2014), Raven’s Touch (2015) and Ava’s Impossible Things (2016), which was the first project to receive an investment from Vimeo’s ‘Share the Screen’ filmmaking fund to support emerging female voices in film.

Marina is currently developing Alien Jane at the Shangri-La, a futuristic film with an all-female cast, American Ryder, a female-driven action film, and Aubrey Goes Down, a sexy, funny, coming-of-age-40 story. All three projects are under the banner of her new production company Play Big Pictures, producing bold universal stories told through a female lens.

Marina also proudly serves on the board of directors for OUTFEST, a year-round organization dedicated to protecting, nurturing and showcasing LGBTQ moving images, and who’s flagship summer festival is one of the most respected in the world. She serves on the executive committee, and chairs the Women’s Committee, creating exciting initiatives that benefit youth, women and the LGBTQ community at large.
