Matthew Dixon’s first screenplay, Starry Night, was selected for the Sundance Institute’s Writers Lab. It was one of only two scripts sponsored by Sundance that year for the Independent Film Project’s “No Borders” conference. The following year, he was chosen for the Sundance Filmmakers Lab. His award winning one-hour television pilot script, The Glass Hotel, had been previously optioned by HBO for Mike Myers; Dixon was also a co-producer on the project. His screenplay, Fish Story, is a 2020 Top-Ten Finalist for the Mammoth Lake Film Festival competition and was a Quarter-Finalist for Los Angeles Int. Screenplay Award. His screenplay, Perfect Memory, is being co-produced by Darren Aronofsky’s Chromista Films and the French company, SeBe Films. He wrote and directed the short film, Modern Houses, starring Lili Taylor, which has played at over 30 festivals around the world, receiving nominations and awards, and for which he has just finished writing the feature script. He directed the documentary One Man Under God, about Michael Newdow, who represented himself before the Supreme Court to have the words “under God” removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. A lifetime member of the Actors Studio, he has acted extensively in theater, film and television.
