Marina Rice Bader

Los Angeles based filmmaker Marina Rice Bader founded Soul Kiss Films in 2009, an independent company dedicated to producing evocative, entertaining and compelling movies by, for, and about women. 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).

Marina is currently developing American Ryder, a female driven action film, and Aubrey Goes Down, an 8-episode limited series. Both projects are under the banner of her new production company Play Big Pictures, launching in May of 2018.

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

“I’m excited to be a filmmaker at this time in history, when women are working to lift each other up in such a big way. The first step in fixing a problem is by shouting it from the rooftops, and I’m extremely proud to be part of the solution.”
