About

Kingdom County Productions’ mission is to strengthen community through the transformative power of film and the performing arts.

KCP’s documentaries provide voice to hidden populations; its narrative films celebrate regional character and culture; and its performing arts presentations bring people together through indelible experiences of shared community.

Kingdom County Productions was established in May 1991 by Jay Craven and Bess O’Brien. Together, Craven and O’Brien set out to fulfill their dream of making films rooted in northern New England—and produced eight award-winning dramatic feature films, seven documentaries, a radio variety show, a touring musical theater production, and an Emmy-winning television comedy series. KCP recently launched Arts, Voices, Action (AVA) which will produce film and theater productions that grow out of issues that are affecting Vermont and Vermonters. Also new, KCP’s Movies from Marlboro program, where 20 professionals mentor and collaborate with 30 students from multiple colleges during a film intensive semester at Marlboro College – that includes the production of a feature-length film for international release.
