Kristen Wolf is an award-winning author, filmmaker and producer.

Working across diverse media, she’s dedicated to telling the stories of daring outsiders whose lives spark change.

Wolf’s first novel, THE WAY: A Girl Who Dared to Rise, was hailed by O, The Oprah Magazine as, “A title to pick up now!” Her second novel, ESCAPEMENT: An Exquisite Tale of Love and Passion earned critical acclaim and multiple awards including the IPPY, IAN, NIEA, BIBA, LesFic Bard Award, IndieReader Discovery Award and the Eric Hoffer First Horizon Award.

Wolf’s short documentary, CLUB Q: The Legendary Dance Party for Women, premiered at the Director’s Guild of America and went on to screen at festivals worldwide.

Her latest short film, SPARKLE, tells the story of a non-binary child struggling to find the perfect Father’s Day gift for their disapproving dad. The film is currently screening at festivals and was awarded Best LGBTQ+ Directed Short Film at the Phoenix Film Festival 2023.

Wolf’s producing credits include NASRIN (dir: Jeff Kaufman), I WAS BORN THIS WAY (dir: Daniel Junge, Sam Pollard), SUBJECT TO CHANGE (dir: Daniel Peddle, the 25-year follow up to the groundbreaking doc, THE AGGRESSIVES) and the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning Broadway hit, A STRANGE LOOP.

Currently, she’s in pre-production on a new short film and preparing to direct her first feature, THE ADAGIO, a passionate queer love story adapted from her second novel.

Wolf serves proudly on Gamechanger Films’ NonProfit, driven by the mission to advance equity and authenticity in the entertainment industry and co-founded Women Have Wings, a grant-making organization that honors and supports courageous women activists around the globe.
