Robbie Robertson is a playwright, screenwriter and graduate of the University of South Carolina and UCLA’s professional screenwriting program. Robertson’s first comedy, MINA TONIGHT! was published by Samuel French and has been produced in regional theatres across the US. His most recent play, a staged adaptation of the B-movie SATAN IN HIGH HEELS, premiered in NYC and enjoyed a sold-out run.
His first short film as writer/director, WHISTLER’S MOTHER (a dark fable based on the iconic painting by James McNeill Whistler) was screened in NYC at The Philip K. Dick Film Festival; in Moscow at the Russian International Horror Film Festival; the Crimson Screen Horror Film Festival where it won the Audience Choice Award, and Screamfest in Los Angeles. Alternating between horror and comedy projects, Robertson is currently developing a feature screenplay of WHISTLER’S MOTHER and working with DEAL Productions on a “coming of (old) age” comedy called YOUNG AMERICAN.
