Matthew Saliba is the award-winning filmmaker behind EROTICIDE (2013), AMY’S IN THE ATTIC (2010), DARK LOTUS (2009), VAMPYROS LESBOS (2008), SHE WAS ASKING FOR IT (2007), PANDORA’S PARADOX (2004) and THE MANIPULATOR AND THE SUBSERVIENT (2003).

He is also the creator and executive producer of the award-winning feature-length anthology film FRANKENSTEIN UNLIMITED (starring Gordon Liu of KILL BILL fame), which won “Best Feature Film” at the 2010 Wreck-Beach International Film Festival and was awarded the “Bronze Prize” for “Best Canadian/Quebec Feature Film” at the 2010 Fantasia International Film Festival.

Since 2003, he’s been making a name for himself as a filmmaker who specializes in films that combine elements of sado-eroticism (which is to say the erotic representation of sadomasochistic imagery) and horror and has had his work screened the world over in such countries as: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the United States.

He’s very interested in subversive art, gender studies, sexual appropriation, sadomasochism, fetishism, surrealism and theatre of the absurd and these interests are very much reflected in his work.

In addition to filmmaking, he moonlights as a writer on his own personal blog entitled THE CELERY STALKS AT MIDNIGHT.

Matthew Saliba currently lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with his beautiful wife, Andrée-Anne Forgues and their adorable cats, Munchkin, Quagmire and Peaches.
