MAT JOHNS studied Film & Television at Salford University in the UK, and for the past ten years has been writing, directing, shooting and editing short films both on a freelance and independent basis. A Father's Day, Mat's latest film, is his most ambitious to date and was made with the support of Creative England's iShorts, a short film initiative delivered as part of the BFI NET.WORK. Mat’s previous short films include Run, Kiss and Radio Silence. Kiss has been selected for a number of high profile festivals including the London Short Film Festival and the New York Independent Film Festival. Mat was awarded the accolade of Best Director for Kiss at Newport International Film Festival. Run has been regarded as somewhat of an internet sensation. Made from start to finish in under four days at the Filmonik Kino Kabaret in Manchester, the film gained much critical and professional acclaim after it was shared by Stephen Fry with his followers on Twitter. It has since gone on to be featured on aintitcool.com’s Saturday Shorts and shortoftheweek.com as well as dozens of other websites and blogs, gaining over 100,000 views. Mat is currently developing a slate of feature films.
