Bliss Films

Telling one heck of an entertaining story
-->
Welcome to our corner of the internet

A movie that
inspires you,
well that's Bliss

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 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

creative voices

Since our inception in 2019, we’ve successfully funded four award-winning short films through grants and crowdfunding, crafted unique music videos, created internationally recognized fashion videos and collaborated on numerous projects. These projects highlight our scope as filmmakers, and we plan to use them not just to hone our craft, but to transcend the expectations of film industry gatekeepers and exemplify our potential to be serious creators.

Meet the team

The Bliss Trio

From top to bottom, Joanna Monfreda is a producer who’s obsessed with logistics. The first question out of her mouth is how? Actually it’s how...much money? Which usually receives eye rolls from her fellow creatives.

Sarineh Garapetian is an actor by trade, she’s a star on screen, as well as a killer festival programmer with an eye for story and a background in film sales.

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.
