Tom Gilroy

Tom Gilroy wrote and directed the short Touch Base, starring Lili Taylor, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and the critically acclaimed feature Spring Forward starring Liev Schreiber, Ned Beatty, Ian Hart and Campbell Scott. A three-time fellow of The MacDowell Colony and two-time Sundance Labs Fellow, Tom was recently awarded the San Francisco Film Society's Kenneth Rainin Foundation Screenwriting grant for his new feature script, Our Lady Of The Snow. His plays (most notably The Invisible Hand and Halcion Days) have been produced in several US cities and around the world. Along with co-creator of The Daily Show Lizz Winstead, Tom just completed a two-year run as the director and head writer of the political satire theatre project Wake Up, World, and last year was commissioned (alongside Sophie Calle, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Albert Maysles) by music legends R.E.M. to create It Happened Today, a short work inspired by their final album. The Cold Lands is his second feature film.
