Kristin Mann spent four years working with filmmakers Jeff Nichols, Terrence Malick and producer Sarah Green, as an Associate Producer and facilitating production of critically-acclaimed films such as MUD, MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, KNIGHT OF CUPS, SONG TO SONG, AFTER THE FALL, and Malick’s decades-in-the-making documentary VOYAGE OF TIME. Additionally, Mann produced the guerilla-style indie feature film POOR BOY, which premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and opened theatrically in summer 2018.
Her latest film, the coming of age 1960s drama TO THE STARS, had its well-received world premiere at Sundance 2019 in U.S. Dramatic Competition and international premiere as the only U.S. film in competition at the prestigious Karlovy Vary Film Festival. TO THE STARS and THE QUARRY are the first films produced by the newly formed company, Prowess Pictures, with fellow producer Laura D. Smith. Mann is currently developing the survivalist terror feature, FORSAKEN, written by Isaac Adamson (BUBBLES) and to be directed by Stephens, with plans to shoot in 2020. Mann lives in Austin, TX.
