About the Guest


MARC MEYERS (Director)

Marc is an American film director and screenwriter. He is the co-founder of Ibid Filmworks, alongside fellow producer Jody Girgenti.

Meyers has directed three feature films over the last fourteen months. He’s currently in post production on All My Life for Universal Pictures, starring Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day) & Harry Shum (Crazy Rich Asians). It’s a tragic love story inspired by a real-life couple.

Human Capital, starring Liev Schrieber, Marisa Tomei, Peter Sarsgaard, Maya Hawke and Alex Wolff, premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and Vertical Entertainment will release the film on March 20, with Universal & Warner Brothers releasing the film internationally. Meyers’ heavy-metal genre flick We Summon The Darkness, starring Alexandra Daddario, Johnny Knoxville, and Maddie Hasson, opens April 10 via Saban Films & Lionsgate.

Previous features have all been written & directed by Meyers. They include the critically-acclaimed cult hit My Friend Dahmer, a FilmRise & Altitude Films release, based on his Blacklist screenplay adapted from the best selling graphic novel of the same name. My Friend Dahmer, starring former Disney star Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, and Anne Heche, premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and invited to numerous prestigious festivals around the world including Deauville, London, Sitges, Frameline, Rome, Fantasia, and Fantastic Fest. Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers called it “a warped wonder of a movie.” Following its strong theatrical run, it aired on HBO and continues to chart on iTunes, Amazon, and other VOD channels.

How He Fell In Love, starring Matt McGorry & Amy Hargreaves, premiered at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival and was released the following summer via Orion Pictures and Monument Releasing. Harvest, a NY Times Critics Pick starring Academy Award Nominees Robert Loggia and Barbara Barrie, was released in 2010. His debut feature Approaching Union Square premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival and aired on Sundance Channel.

Marc is an alumnus of various theater collectives in New York including the Ensemble Studio Theatre and Cherry Lane Theatre. He’s grateful for the mentorship of Milan Stitt, Tom Noonan, and other artists. He started as a writer/director by turning his one-act plays into short films.

Marc lives with his wife and daughter in Brooklyn, NY, where he often lovingly fills the roles of short-order cook, chauffeur, and sherpa.
