Kristin Peterson Kaszubowski is an award-winning filmmaker, published poet, and budding playwright based in Milwaukee, WI. Since graduating in 2012 from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee with a documentary journalism degree, she has made dozens of films, many of which have screened across the country and globe. Her poetry has been published by such presses as dancing girl press, ICHNOS, Z Publishing, pity milk press, and more. Her first full length poetry collection will launch in June 2019 from Vegetarian Alcoholic Press.

In 2018, her music video “Gravetalking” (artist: Amanda Huff) won the Milwaukee Film Festival’s Cream City Cinema Music Video Award. She was also awarded the Brico Forward Fund for her first feature film “Ringolevio.” She and her team will begin production in Spring 2019.
