Kristin Fairweather has worked in local politics and public finance in Philadelphia for the past ten years, managing public relations campaigns as well as large field efforts for local politicians-an experience that translated well to film production. Before going to work at both local and state levels in public finance and elective politics, she received her Masters in Government Administration from the University of Pennsylvania. As a producer, Fairweather’s political savvy has aided in development and marketing for Future Weather and will play a crucial role in managing pre-production. She was instrumental in producing Save the Future, Jenny Deller’s companion-short to Future Weather for the Netflix FIND Your Voice Film Competition. The short was recently accepted into the 2010 Nantucket Film Festival.

Together with Jenny Deller, Kristin is the recipient of the 2009 Alfred P. Sloan Producing Grant, as well as the 2010 Alfred P. Sloan Fast Track Grant, both of which were awarded by Film Independent.
