IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

John Harden

John Harden made his first film on Super-8, as an extra credit project for his 7th grade Spanish class. John got an "A," and was delighted to discover that making a movie was a way to get people's attention and simultaneously hide in the back of the room where no-one was looking at you. Perfect.

John went on to study film history and production at Santa Rosa Junior College and Sonoma State University, and screenwriting at The College of Marin.

His films have played on PBS, and screened at places like the Slamdance Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, and New Directors/New Films.

His short film La vie d'un chien (The Life of a Dog) won numerous festival awards including the Jury Prize for Best Narrative Short at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

In 2009 a screenplay he co-wrote with Skot Christopherson, The Sensitivity Program, won best science fiction screenplay in the prestigious Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition.

John's other skills include graphic design, illustration, and air guitar. He is married and lives in Santa Rosa, California.
