Holly Hardman (Producer/Director)

Holly Hardman has been involved in film and entertainment media since the 1980’s. Before she started making films, Hardman worked as a researcher for Rolling Stone, PBS, and Twentieth Century Fox by day, while writing and performing in the underground art worlds of New York and Los Angeles by night. Hardman formed Holy Sin Prods. in the early 1990’s and began writing, directing, and producing short films. Her films were distributed by New Day, insound and M/W/F Video. Timea Spitkova of The Prague Post wrote: “Hardman’s films illustrate why you should never turn up your nose at underground films.” Her film Seaschell Beach was awarded Best of Filmcore (New York Underground Film Festival, 1998). Her first feature Besotted, an experimental dark comedy, was released theatrically in the United States by Artistic License Films in 2002. Good People Go to Hell, Saved People Go to Heaven, which had its world premiere at IDFA 2012, is Hardman’s first documentary effort. Hardman lives in western Massachusetts, where she is raising her 11-year-old daughter.
