Kristine Gerolaga co-wrote/starred in the short film Disconnection with Steven Krimmel, which has made its national television debut on NUVOtv's inaugural Nu Point of View: The Emerging Latino Filmmaker's showcase in March 2014. Her directorial debut, A Period Drama (which she also wrote and stars in) won Best Short at both the 2015 Broad Humor Film Festival and Artisyn Studio's 2015 Funniest Film Festival. A Period Drama was picked up for distribution by Hewes Pictures and can be seen on DirecTV's SHORTS HD and Amazon Prime. Her next directing effort Hit or Miss, was a finalist for director Justin Lin's Asian-American filmmaker initiative Interpretations 2.0. Kristine was also awarded Best Female Performance at the 2016 Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival for her performance in I Hate the Color Red directed by Jazmin Jamias and Best Actor in a Dramedy at the 2017 Best Actors Film Festival for her performance in On the Edge directed by Alia Lundy. In 2018, her Instagram micro-series @starringkristine had two shorts chosen as finalists out of 23 selected worldwide for Toronto International Film Festival's TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival. @starringkristine was then selected for a grant by the amazing organization The Future of Film is Female. She was also quoted or had her work featured in The Hollywood Reporter, Inc., BuzzFeed, DirectedByWomen.com, Yahoo! Movies, Gizmodo, and Fast Company.

"Kristine was an ideal guest and I highly recommend her to other Airbnb hosts! She was very respectful of my space and left the place in super clean condition. She was so sweet, very clean and just a great attitude overall. Her communication during the entire process was excellent and I'd host her again anytime. Thanks Kristine!"
