Mark WebberACTOR | DIRECTOR | WRITER
Webber has been nominated for multiple awards for directing and acting. His latest film, The Place of No Words won ‘Best Film’ – at the Giffoni Film Festival and was nominated at Tribeca Film Festival, Munich Film Festival, and the Philadelphia Film Festival. Webber is also known for roles in films such as Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, A24’s Green Room, Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, and The End of Love.
His unique approach to authentic storytelling began with his first feature, Explicit Ills, where he used elements from his real life, including casting his family members. In his second feature, The End of Love, his process crystalized when he cast his two-year-old son Isaac as the lead and built the entire script around their actual father-son dynamic as a way to put real love, pain, humor and vulnerability on screen. With his critically acclaimed feature, Flesh and Blood, Webber continued imbuing his work with the most personal aspects of his life by casting his actual mother, brother, his brother’s father, and his biological father (who he met on screen for only the second time in over 30 years).
