Michael Goldburg


MICHAEL GOLDBURG (Writer/Director/Co-Producer) is an award-winning filmmaker who earned his M.F.A. at NYU's Graduate Film Program where his thesis film won a Warner Bros. Pictures Production Award and a Dean's Craft Award for Excellence. Michael has continued to make acclaimed films, commercials, and web series; including his hilariously absurd, horror-comedy short film, "What’s Eating Dad?," which was named one of the Top 10 Horror Shorts of 2014 and has won multiple other accolades, including Best Comedy-Horror Short at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival, the People’s Choice Award for Best Film at the Red Hook International Film Festival, the Audience Award at Siouxland Film Festival, a Special Jury Award at WorldFest-Houston, the Audience Award and Judges’ Prize at the Iron Mule Comedy Film Festival, and Best Actor at Macabre Faire Film Festival. The film was also nominated for Best Screenplay at the Diabolique International Film Festival, Best Actress at the Houston Comedy Film Festival, and Best Actress at the Eerie Horror Film Festival. http://whatseatingdad.com/
Michael’s prior prizewinning short film, “Happy Trails,” a comic road trip from hell, screened at several prestigious international film festivals and won a Special Honor at the American Gem Screenplay Competition. He also co-directed the grand-prize winning web series, “Cafe Conversations,” for FliggeeBox. In addition, Michael directed and produced “Tragic Relief,” a bleakly funny web series by writers from The Onion and Comedy Central, which was featured on Funny or Die and nominated for several Channy Awards at the Channel 101 screening series at UCB East in NYC. Michael is currently in pre-production on his first feature, the hilarious crime comedy, "Sure-Fire." He was also awarded an AIVF Screenwriting Mentorship and is developing several other feature screenplays, including an adaptation of John Blades’ (former book editor of “The Chicago Tribune”) comic novel of suburban paranoia, “Small Game," and a shocking small-town murder mystery, “Black River,” inspired by a true story. http://www.michaelgoldburg.com/
