About Jeremy

Jeremy Kriss made his directorial debut with the feature SOMETHING HORRIBLE (2018), which was an Official Selection at numerous festivals, including Hudson Valley, and received awards such as "Most Innovative Film” at Ekurheleni South Africa and "Best Sound Design” at Jefferson State Flixx Fest (yes, the 51st state, coming soon). The ultra-low budget film features Tippi Hedren, Dennis Dun, and Lisa Wilcox.

His screenplays have been honored by festivals and competitions such as Oaxaca Film Fest, Roadmap Writers Jumpstart Competition, The Porto Alegre Screenwriting Festival – FRAPA, and Jefferson State Flixx Festival. Kriss works in the Horror and Thriller genres, has degrees in Theatre and English, and taught English, theatre, and filmmaking for almost twenty years. In 2019, he took the jump into writing full-time.

Kriss is repped by Lane Heymont at The Tobias Agency.

Unique traits: Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Or two. Maybe three.
