Meet Director Mattson Tomlin – November 6, 2013 7:30 PM #IFIE Meetup


November 6, 2013 7:30 PM, Meet AFI film director Mattson Tomlin at Pitzer College



Independent Filmmaker – Director Mattson Tomlin, who successfully funded his project Solomon Grundy on Kickstarter, will be here to discuss his own approach when taking a look at a project.

Mattson Tomlin is currently at AFI, taking the director’s track.

“I come from a town of less than 1,500 people in Massachusetts.  When I was about twelve I started recruiting the local townsfolk to be my actors and crew, and before I knew it I was 18, living in New York City, and attending the SUNY Purchase Film Conservatory.  During my time at Purchase I directed a feature film called SOLOMON GRUNDY that was released this year, and two short films called DREAM LOVER and BRUISER. The shorts are free online and I encourage you to check them out, because I made them for you.  I’m now studying at the American Film Institute and having my eyes opened wider each and every day.  I’m currently chasing a feature film that I will direct in 2014, but not before I direct my upcoming thesis film, PERSUASION.”


This is a great opportunity for local filmmakers.  Come learn, network and possibly win some prizes!
