Anthony Scott Burns

Anthony Scott Burns is a filmmaker from the new school, an autodidactic artist that derives inspiration from the simplest motivation: to create art on his own terms. He shoots, edits, scores, writes, designs, and completes the brunt of the post-work on his projects. Born in Kitchener, Ontario, and based in Toronto, he first made his name known with the self-release of the viral fan short film Tron: Destiny in 2011 and followed it up with the 2013 short Manifold, which world premiered at Fantastic Fest. In 2014, he directed an episode of Vincenzo Natali’s show Darknet and in 2016 contributed to Kevin Smith’s horror anthology Holidays. Burns’ feature debut, Our House, world premiered at the 2018 Fantasia International Film Festival and was released later that year by IFC Midnight. Burns’ sophomore feature, Come True, a sci-fi horror starring Julia Sarah Stone and Landon Liboiron, had its world premiere at the digital edition of Fantasia and is now in theaters and on demand through IFC Midnight.

Letterboxd reviews are now being used by some executives as 'evidence' of what people want. Good luck with that.
