Bliss Films is a trio of inventive women on a mission to make movies that empower unlikely protagonists, entice an audience to re-evaluate their preconceptions, and tell one heck of an entertaining story. What does all that mean? Well besides being a good instagram bio, it is our manifesto.
We are up-and-coming filmmakers, passionate about telling impactful and moving stories. And while we are captivated by the storytelling part, we sure know there’s much more to making movies than writing them. We’re constantly building our team, bringing more and more young, diverse filmmakers into our fold to collaborate and tell meaningful stories. We strive to be a production company for the next generation of great creators.More about us

And the person that makes us the golden trifecta is Kat Ferentchak, a director and writer. She digs the nitty gritty of a strong point of view that breathes life into story.
