Kate Oliva

storyteller. filmmaker. strategist.

Kate is an

LA-based ​storyteller, ​filmmaker,

and strategist.

Kate Oliva wants to make you laugh and change the world (ideally both). Born and ​raised in NY, she is a compulsive storyteller with a passion for intersectional social ​change. Through comedy and character-driven narratives, she seeks to foster ​empathy and shift our views on ourselves, community, and society as a whole.

Over the last 14 years, she has written, produced, and directed editorial and video ​content for production companies, brands, tech startups, and nonprofits. In all of its ​varied formats (feature documentary, surrealist short film, branded digital series, op-​ed, personal essays), her work weaves strategy and narrative to tell stories that make a ​difference, whether that’s uplifting a social cause, centering excluded narratives, or ​simply making people think.

Highlights include THE POSSIBILITIES OF REGENERATION with the Oscar and Annie-​winning Jason Carpenter Animation team; digital series GROW WHAT YOU KNOW ​with Kiss the Ground and Elektra Records; short documentary STORIES OF ​REGENERATION: YADI WANG about regenerative agriculture in Arizona; feature ​documentary THE DEATH BOOM, from Appian Way and QC Entertainment; and ​campaign ads for progressive female candidates through Women for the Win.

Kate is currently developing three scripted TV comedies, producing several indie film ​projects, and consulting on TV, film, and audio content for Good Energy, a climate ​storytelling nonprofit.
