Watch the trailer

Kris Lefcoe is a Canadian-American writer-director based in New York City. Her work has screened at TIFF, SXSW, British Film Institute, Art Basel Miami, on IFC, and the Sundance Channel. 

Kris is co-creator, writer and EP of “Making Plans For Nigel,” a comedy series in network development with Purple Pebble Pictures’ Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Mary Rohlich (“Atypical”). Lefcoe's half-hour comedy “Giving Up,” about a New York couple facing their own deadline to either ‘make it’ or give up their dreams, won top prizes at Seriesfest and New York Television Festival. The series was executive produced by David Wain and developed with Imagine Television. In 2020, Kris made her network directing debut on the NBC comedy “Superstore.”

Pitch-black comedy “Public Domain,” Kris’ audacious audience-award-winning feature debut about a surveillance-based game show, was hailed as "creepy-funny and well-acted" (Variety), and "an assured debut" (Austin Chronicle). The film premiered at SXSW and was installed at Art Basel Miami.

Lefcoe’s stop motion short “Tiny Riot Project,” featuring a riot squad of corporate mascots in a violent face off with endearing anarchists, premiered at IFF Rotterdam, was installed at Galerie Tomas Schulte Berlin, Havana Biennale, and Art Basel Miami, then sold to the Sundance Channel. Her acclaimed Twilight Zone-esque short “Can I Get a Witness?” starring Scott Speedman, screened at TIFF, BFI and Anthology Film Archives.

Kris' explosive music videos have garnered numerous nominations and awards, including the Peaches smash “Boys Wanna Be Her.”

She recently won Best Director at New York Cinefest, and Best Director and Best Comedy at Deluxe Film Festival in Rome, for the sex-robot comedy “Technical Support” starring Aparna Nancherla and Courtney Pauroso. And she’s currently writing her second feature, a midlife crisis comedy that asks - can hedonism and hallucinogens save a family?

As a musician, Kris performs haunting original songs at live venues around NYC. Her first solo release, “Booked A Room,” is set for June 2024, with a hallucinatory stop motion video directed by Kris, premiering at the 2024 Tribeca Film Festival.

Kris is also a professor in the MFA Film and Television program at Stony Brook University, SUNY. She lives with her husband and daughter in a long-forgotten borough called Manhattan.
