MARIN LEPORE is a screenwriter, director, and activist currently based out of Denver, Colorado. She's grown up in suburban Colorado, and lived in the big city of Beijing from age ten to sixteen where she became fluent in Mandarin and ate far too many jianbing.
She studied writing and directing at the Colorado Film School, then continued at the University of Colorado Denver where she graduated with a BFA in Film & Television. She's the co-founder of the entirely women-led production company SAD GIRL PRODUCTIONS.
Falling within these groups herself, Marin is passionate about creating inclusive films that celebrate women, POC, and LGBT people. Her work often explores the intersections of these identities through the lens of comedy, romance, both, or neither -- most notably, her coming-of-age web-series "I Put the Bi in Bitter."
Outside of film, Marin enjoys juggling, tabletop games, playing violin, loving turtles, and eating Chipotle. Her favorite quote in the entire world is: "Before time flew it was an egg; going nowhere."
