Maybe you’re in a position where you can only dream of having your own public relations nightmare, but what you must realize is that it’s never too early to think of hiring a good publicist. The truth is, you are going to be so busy getting your movie made, that you won’t have time to think about how you’re going to get the word out about your amazing film. And what’s the use of making it if no one will ever see it? These are all matters to consider… in the beginning.

Kristi Mohrbacher

Hailing from Denver, Colo., Kristi Mohrbacher traded the Rocky Mountains for the Pacific Ocean to pursue a career in PR in Los Angeles. Her passion lies in emotion and the words, pictures and ideas that stir it, so she has combined her love of marketing and journalism into a career in public relations to help spread the word about projects that inspire! She represented the independent feature film April Showers, and is currently representing Dancing Carl, a family feature film based on Newbery Award-winning author Gary Paulsen’s book of the same name. She is also assisting with PR efforts for the stoner comedy hit High Society: A Pot Boiler, the comedic short about addiction Bed Ridden, the upcoming prequel to Easy Rider called Easy Rider: The Ride Back, and the powerful documentary An American Journey. She graduated from the University of Colorado in 2004 with a B.A. in Marketing, and then again in 2009 with an M.A. in Journalism from the same university. Kristi is the publicist for Pure+Motive films and works at Jolson Creative PR.
