Director Bio:  George Gross (GHOSTWRITTEN)

George Gross is a passionate and dedicated filmmaker, comedy director, and creative director who has screened films around the world including Cannes Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, SXSW, and Toronto Film Festival. A “complete” filmmaker, skilled in all departments of filmmaking, his work has brought in many awards including a Cannes Lion for his work with IBM, a Silver Telly for editing the award winning feature film Booker’s Place: A Mississippi story, and he’s won five “Best Film” awards in 48 Hour Hour Film Festivals in New York City, Austin, Asheville, New Haven, and Buffalo. In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, Gross oversaw the marketing campaign of Town Judge candidate Jeff Gasbarro, creating commercial and print spots, unseating an 8 year incumbent. But if anything, George Gross is most known for bringing Tommy Wiseau’s The Room to New York, and hosting a midnight screening once a month, to sold out audiences for 3 years. At the peak of its success, selling out New York’s legendary Ziegfeld Theater, making The Room one of the last three movies to sell out The Ziegfeld’s 1,200 seats before closing in 2016, the other two were both Star Wars.
