Director Biography - Matt Aaron Krinsky

MATT AARON KRINSKY is a filmmaker, theatre director, producer, writer, and acting coach.

He began his entertainment career as an assistant to acclaimed producer Lawrence Bender at A Band Apart, his production company with Quentin Tarantino. Shortly after that, Matt formed his own independent company – Mogul Productions – to facilitate his desire to produce and direct both for stage and screen.

As a filmmaker, Matt secured financing to produce and direct AN EYE FOR AN EYE (2004), a short film starring Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe Winner Sally Kirkland. The film had a successful film festival run and secured an international distribution deal. Additional festival-bound shorts include VOODOO LOVE (2007), DEMONIC ATTACHMENT (2016), PLAYDATE (2018) – which was acquired by the streaming platform IndieFlix – and his latest short, BROTHERS ON A MOTEL BED, is now entering the festival circuit.

For the stage, Matt has directed and produced a number of world premiere plays and readings, additionally serving as dramaturg on several of these productions. He is particularly proud to have directed the Off-Broadway premiere of the one-act play, WITH LOVE (Theatre at St. Clement’s), and to have worked as a Teaching Artist with the Disney Musicals in Schools program.

He holds a BA in Psychology from Brandeis University, studied filmmaking at NYU and UCLA, and trained as an actor at the Joanne Baron / D.W. Brown Studio and the Carolyne Barry Acting Academy. He gained tremendous behind-the-scenes insight into the entertainment industry during his tenure as a Corporate Communications Coordinator at Disney and is an alumnus of the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab West.

Matt will make his feature directorial debut in 2022 on the film ALL SAINTS DAY. He is also developing a slate of other feature film, television, and stage projects.

When not in the rehearsal room or creating content, Matt loves to improve his self-taught graphic design skills, seek out new cafes for iced coffee, binge on Netflix, play word games, watch cartoons, and hang out with his adorable niece and three nephews.
