Christy Scott Cashman
As founding partner, producer, actor, and writer for Saint Aire Productions, Christy Scott Cashman spent her first 10 years in film learning the anatomy of a screenplay and studying acting. This time not only gave Christy essential industry knowledge, but the desire to create her own distinctive projects for film.
Inspired by the art of organic storytelling, a notable project of Christy’s, OPEN BOOK CLUB, was born while hosting renowned authors and special guests affiliated with PEN New England. She has also written three additional feature-length scripts, with her latest, THE LOVE GUIDE (aka SUNNY SIDE UP) starring Parker Posey. As an actress, she has appeared in over 20 feature films and in 2007 produced and starred with Whoopi Goldberg in an animated short.
Christy also serves on the Board of Boston-based literary organization, Grub Street, and is thrilled to be a founding member of the AFI National Council.
Christy actively manages the financing, production and distribution of all Saint Aire Projects as well as steers the creative forces that comprise the Saint Aire Brand.
