Marcia Kimpton has produced and directed a number of successful web series, TV pilots and short films. With “Brado Blues” being her first feature film, it has already been submitted to a number of of other film festivals in 2017.
“Planet M” was Kimpton’s short film directorial debut in which she acted, produced, and wrote the screenplay of the dark comedy that captures a late night host in a downward spiral into the depths of reality TV. Given the rise of content satirizing reality TV, Marcia created a continuing web series with the characters from the film that is going into it’s third season.

Kimpton also created a pilot for the TV series “An American in Amsterdam” which is currently being pitched to Dutch networks.

She’s studied with the Lee Strausberg Actor’s studio and NYU’s film program in New York City, and has traveled to more than 40 countries, studied at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, and continued her extensive studies in meditation and yoga.
With such an accomplished writer/director behind the helm and an incredibly engaging story blending the cold realities of failure and the troubles of someone’s own mind, Bardo Blues is a film not to be missed at the Eighth Annual SOHO International Film Festival’s Closing Night, Wednesday, June 21st!
