Matt Lyon (Toronto)
Matt Lyon made his first cut at the age of eight with some splicing tape and a couple reels of super8. He experienced his first system crash a few minutes later when the film got caught in the projector gate and melted into a puddle of plastic. Not one to shy away from a challenge, he has gone on to work on features, shorts, episodic television, documentaries and animation. Films he has worked on have played at Slamdance, IDFA, TIFF and SXSW. The most recent feature he cut, “Bang Bang Baby,” won the “Best First Canadian Feature” at TIFF 2014.
