Kathy Lindboe has transitioned from stage to film as a writer, producer and director. Born in Edina, MN and a native of Hudson, Wisconsin, her ties to the Midwest run deep. After studying theater and film at Minnesota's St. Cloud State University, she went on to hone her craft directing theater in Minneapolis, MN, directing twelve stage productions, including a ‘best of the twin cities’ production of Martin Sherman’s ‘Bent’. In addition to directing she was the choreographer for several productions at the Phoenix Playhouse. It was also in Minneapolis where the story of her first feature film NONAMES started to take shape. Eventually moving to New York to study film, Kathy stayed involved with the theater scene, directing a Freeplay project with the NYU Grad acting students and the Off-Broadway production of Charles Fuller's ‘A Soldiers Play’ for the Diversity Players of Harlem. In the meantime, NONAMES started to gain momentum in workshops and eventually came to fruition as a feature film starring James Badge Dale, Gillian Jacobs and Barry Corbin. NONAMES won several awards on the festival circuit, including, ‘Best Director’, ‘Best Ensemble Cast’ and jury awards for acting achievements. Osiris Entertainment is now distributing the film. Kathy is also one of the producers of the feature film MISSED CONNECTIONS starring Mickey Sumner and Jon Abrahams which recently won the Audience Award at the Sarasota Film Festival and Gen Art film fest in NYC. It is also a finalist for a Gotham Award and will be released on Valentine's Day 2013.
