Kirsten Larvick explores storytelling and preservation through nonfiction filmmaking and archival work. From her experiences in documentary production, audiovisual and ephemera preservation, grew a focus on these disciplines and where they intersect.
In 2006, Kirsten became a member of New York Women in Film & Television. Shortly thereafter, she began attending meetings of NYWIFT's Women’s Film Preservation Fund, which she currently Co-Chairs with filmmaker, Ann Levy. WFPF is the only program in the world that works to preserve the cultural legacy of women in the film industry. The fund was founded by producer, Barbara Moss through NYWIFT and in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art. WFPF eventually led Kirsten to found the Al Larvick Fund and join the team at IndieCollect as an audiovisual archivist.
Documentary credits include producing, research, outreach and editorial roles on various feature, broadcast and short nonfiction projects including, LOOK AT US NOW, MOTHER!; BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL; YOUNG LAKOTA among others. Kirsten’s independent productions center on short-form stories which incorporate archival materials to consider memory, identity, roots and community.
