Director Biography - Mat Rich

Mat Rich never "planned" on becoming a director; he just followed his gut and did every ridiculous thing that came to mind until he ended up with a clear mission and a deep passion. A passion that has allowed him to travel across the world doing what he loves, while collaborating with people far more important than some québecois daredevil with a mullet (i.e. him).

From hit music videos, to award winning short films; his work always contains an element of zaniness. Whether he's tackling an ambitious concept, or attempting to justify a ludicrous premise, he endeavors to shock his audience, make them laugh, and ultimately, make them think.

Director Statement

When approached with this script, what really won me over was the story’s meta narrative. The symbolism at the root of these colourful characters provides this universal story with multiple layers of interpretation. Get-Together is a wholesome film with a lot of heart and just the right amount of cheese.
