Paul Shoulberg is a writer and director of feature films, and a graduate of the MFA playwriting program at Indiana University.
Paul Shoulberg’s directorial debut, The Good Catholic, starring Danny Glover and John C. McGinley, won the Panavision Spirit Award for Independent Cinema at the 2017 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and the award for Best Screenplay at the 2017 Milan International Film Festival.
The Good Catholic follows a devoted young priest who unexpectedly falls in love with a college student he meets one day in confession. It’s essentially the story of Paul Shoulberg’s father, who left the priesthood to marry Shoulberg’s mother.

Shoulberg is currently in post-production on his next film, Ms. White Light, which was also filmed in the Bloomington area.
