About Kris Kimlin

Kristopher S. Kimlin is an award-winning Canadian/American cinematographer best known for his work on “I Can Only Imagine”. Kimlin moved to the US when he was young and it was during his high school years where he sneaked his way onto the set of a movie in his hometown and there he was bit with the movie bug. It was in college in New York where Kimlin found a love for photography and then began expanding into the world of cinematography.

His first feature, an independent called “October Baby” was his first partnership with Jon & Andrew Erwin. Twelve years and six films later, the team finds themselves in post-production on the Christmas release of “American Underdog”, the story of hall of fame NFL quarterback Kurt Warner.
