Miranda Bailey

Prolific producer, actor, director, and distributor Miranda Bailey is known for creating high-quality independent films through her company Cold Iron Pictures and The Film Arcade. Her passion for bringing strong, well-crafted stories to the screen is evident in the diversity of her movies both as a director: the documentaries THE PATHOLOGICAL OPTIMIST and GREENLIT and her first narrative feature, the upcoming YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR FAMILY. This year, Miranda has also started CherryPicks a new venture dedicated to the female critical voice, to battle gender imbalance in film criticism. 

She also has distinguished herself in the last 15 years as a hit indie producer: among them the Oscar-nominated THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, the Spirit Award-winning THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL, James Gunn’s SUPER, the Sundance hit SWISS ARMY MAN, the critically acclaimed DON’T THINK TWICE and most recently, the Sony Classic’s hit NORMAN.
