AHHA FILM INSTITUTE
Zach Litwack is a filmmaker based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Active since 2001, his recent films include the social justice documentary, One Life For Another (2013), the horror homage to German Expressionism, The Gentleman (2012), the surreal fantasy, Lost and Found (2008), and the dark comedy, Improvisation (2006). Between 2007 and 2008, both Improvisation and Lost and Found were featured as Official Selections in the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner. One Life For Another, an account of his mother’s near death experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer during the Panama Canal Riots of 1964, received the endorsement of the Sargent Shriver Peace Institute in 2013 and is beginning its festival circuit. He is currently in pre-production on Good Intentions, a short that will be included in the anthology feature, Vacancy, and writing the feature screenplay for the supernatural thriller, The Other Side.
Outside of pursuing his own projects, Litwack enjoys teaching others to express themselves through film. Between 2001 and 2011, he has taught screenwriting, film production, and film editing at Living Arts of Tulsa, the Tulsa Opera Summer Program, the Chicago chapter of Upward Bound, and Columbia College Chicago’s Film & Video Department. He is looking forward to bringing his experience to the classroom at the AHHA Film Institute and helping a new generation of filmmakers to find their cinematic voices.
