WHIT STILLMAN (Writer/Director/Producer) is the writer-director of four films, the last three in collaboration with producers Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer. His first film, METROPOLITAN (1990), was well-received at the Sundance, Deauville and Cannes festivals, as well as winning several awards and an Oscar nomination. His next two films, BARCELONA and THE LAST DAYS OF DISCO, were also well received and won awards. He turned the latter story into a novel, The Last Days of Disco, with Cocktails at Petrossian Afterward, published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. Stillman graduated from Harvard where he was an editor of the Harvard Crimson. After stints in book publishing and journalism he became involved in the Spanish film industry, working on and appearing in Fernando Colomo’s Manhattan-set comedy SKYLINE and Fernando Treuba’s SAL GORDA with Paco Rabal. For the past decade he lived in Paris and Madrid while working film projects in London. He has two daughters, one in college in the United States and the other studying law in Dublin.
