Major Achievements: Tim McCann has directed eight independent feature films, including Desolation Angels (presented by Jonathan Demme and Barbet Schroeder), Revolution #9, Runaway and White Rabbit, and has won a variety of international awards, including the International Critics Prize at the Toronto Film Festival, the Merchant Ivory | Kodak Award at the Telluride Film Festival, and Critic’s Choice at Rotterdam. Variety claimed “McCann’s instinctive camera-eye burnishes nearly every exchange with a Cassavetes dynamism”. He has also worked as a screenwriter and cinematographer, and has guest lectured at Boston University, Cornell University, Ithaca College, The New School, Montclair and others, and was recently head of the Film Program at Purchase College, S.U.N.Y.
