An author, director and prolific producer, Galt Niederhoffer is also one of the founders of Plum Pictures, a New York-based film production company. Niederhoffer has produced films within and outside of Plum Pictures, and has also directed an adaptation of one her own novels, "The Romantics." She entered the film industry in the late 1990s, first producing the gritty childhood drama "Hurricane" in 1997. The following year, she wrote, produced and directed the barely-seen film "Myth America," which featured a then-unknown Rashida Jones. After continuing to produce through the remainder of the decade, Niederhoffer stepped back into the director's chair for the 2000 effort "Six Chicks in a Kitchen" (she also handled screenwriting and production duties for the film). After helping create Plum, Niederhoffer became more active as a producer; some of the films that came out through the production company during the 2000s include the 2005 comedy drama "Lonesome Jim" (2005), directed by indie favorite Steve Buscemi, and the 2007 Sundance hit "Grace Is Gone," starring John Cusack. Niederhoffer has produced many films away from Plum, such as the Christina Ricci-led film "Prozac Nation" in 2001 and the 2010 Oscar-nominated dramedy "The Kids Are All Right." 2010 also saw the release of Niederhoffer's reunion comedy "The Romantics," her first directorial effort in a decade. The film starred Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin and Adam Brody.
