Brad Anderson

The Darien Gap, Brad Anderson's first feature, screened in competition at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival. Because of the film, he was honored by Variety in 1997 as one of the Ten Leading New Independent Directors to Watch. In 1998, his film Next Stop Wonderland featuring Hope Davis and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, was picked up at Sundance by Miramax. It won the Grand Prix and Audience Award at the Deauville Film Festival and the Excellence in Filmmaking Award from the National Board of Review.

In 2001, he had the unusual experience of having two of his films simultaneously hit theatres, both to overwhelming critical praise: the romantic comedy Happy Accidents (IFC Films), which stars Marisa Tomei and Vincent D'Onofrio; and the psychological thriller Session 9 (USA Films), starring Josh Lucas, David Caruso and Peter Mullan.

His television directing credits include episodes of Homicide; HBO's The Wire; and the FX hit The Shield.
