We are three sisters
who live in NYC.
We make films, music
videos + commercials.
CLAUDIA CIFUENTES is a New York-based writer, director and producer of Guatemalan descent. A graduate of NYU’s prestigious film program, Claudia Cifuentes began her career in Los Angeles as an apprentice to acclaimed director Michael Mann, the creator behind such hits as Miami Vice and Heat.
Inspired by his auteur-style of filmmaking, she eventually moved back to New York to hone her own personal writing and directing style. She has since created numerous music videos, commercials and short-format films including Rivington Kids, a series of shorts developed through the IFP and recognized for accurately capturing the zeitgeist of twenty-somethings in New York.
Determined to continue her quest of making personal, high-integrity films for the masses, she recently completed her first feature-length film, After the Wedding, in her hometown of Miami. The film is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2014. She is currently writing her second feature film.
LISA CIFUENTES is a producer with a background in public relations + event planning. Her enthusiasm for art, music and storytelling are at the core of what drives her work, whether it is producing music videos, short films, art shows, or corporate initiatives.
In addition to co-owning and executive producing Pink Forest Films, Lisa also produces at Bluebeard Productions where she has produced music videos for Yes Giantess and Bottle Up and Go, commercial videos for Alexandra Grecco and Malibu Rum, as well as several independent short films. Before working in film production, Lisa was a publicist at The Thomas Collective, where her clients included Chivas Regal, Wild Turkey Bourbon, the Wines of Chile and the wine portfolio of Pernod Ricard USA. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
KARINA CIFUENTES is a writer and director living in Brooklyn, New York.
Karina began her career at the early age of 15, working in the costume department of Bad Boys II, directed by Michael Bay. This led to greater positions working in the music video and commercial industry for award-winning production companies such as Partizan (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Ridley Scott’s RSA Films (American Gangster) where she was inspired to begin her directing career.
In the summer of 2010, Karina directed a video lookbook for emerging designer Alexandra Grecco, which has since received nearly 20k views on Vimeo alone. More recently, she directed a live-performance series for NY based band, KNTRLR, signed to Goodnight Records. In addition to several music videos and fashion lookbooks she has lined up for this year, Karina is also currently writing, Sofia + Lucia, her first feature film about sisterhood.
