Hiya folks!

Remember me? Matthew Saliba here with a little update on what I’ve been up to since I last updated this page, oh… 2 years ago?! Wow, has it really been 2 years? Time flies when you’re having fun and that’s just what I’ve been doing.

For a little over 2 years now, I’ve been working as a manager and film programmer at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I never thought I’d find a “day job” that could make me feel as satisfied as filmmaking did but I’ll be damned if I don’t leave work each and every day with a big smile on my face knowing that the work I do curating The Carlton Midnight Society (Toronto’s one and only monthly midnight film screening series) is appreciated and in some cases, emulated by so many in the city.

But of course, there are those who remember me before I became “Mr. Midnight” and will always ask, when are you going to make another movie?

Since 2003, I’ve made 7 films; 8 if you count my contribution to OUR FOOTLOOSE REMAKE. I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with some of the most talented and wonderful artists and human beings I have ever met and will treasure those memories till the day I die and perhaps even beyond the grave. But truth be told, after the incredible success of EROTICIDE which as of today, has screened in over 26 countries, been translated into 4 languages, collected awards for directing and acting (the latter of which I’m very proud of since Stephanie van Rijn may very well have given the best performance EVER in a Sinema Saliba production) and has been viewed over 1.5 million times on YouTube, I guess you can say for a while I was afraid to embark upon another cinematic endeavour. I suppose you can say that my anxiety stemmed from a fear of having to follow this up. What if I make another flick that bombs? What if any goodwill I was so lucky to gain from older and newer fans after EROTICIDE was tossed aside after making something that in their eyes would be deemed subpar? And here’s the biggest fear I had… whenever I’d do a Q&A or print or internet interview, I would constantly bring up the fact that EROTICIDE was the kind of film I was trying to make for over 10 years. If, in fact, that was really the case, wouldn’t EROTICIDE technically be my swan song and cue to bow out gracefully and let a new generation of DIY filmmakers take the helm and make sado-erotic dramas of their own?

But then I realised 8 is kind of an awkward number of films to “retire” on. 10, on the other hand is a nice round number and has a good ring to it. And wouldn’t you know it, there’s a couple of really strong ideas that have been kicking around in this old chunk of coal’s noggin’ that I think would make for two of the most wicked awesome films that I personally would die to see on the big screen. One of which came to me during my vacation last September in Berlin and Prague and the other, believe it or not, is a film I’ve been wanting to make since 2005, which according to my math, is 12 years now. And then, I got to thinking, well if EROTICIDE is a film I’ve been wanting to make for 10 years and *this* idea is something I’ve been wanting to make for 12 years, well by that logic, wouldn’t *that* be the picture for me to go out on?

You’re damn right, it would be!

So I’m very happy to announce that I am officially coming out of “retirement” to make not one, but TWO brand new films! And I even have working titles for them. The Berlin / Prague inspired idea will be called SUCCUBUS and my “swan song” film, the one that I have truly been wanting to make for 12 years now will be called I’M YOUR FLESH.

In the meantime, feel free to check out EROTICIDE as it’s the best film I’ve ever made and certainly the one I’m the proudest of.

Stay tuned folks, as Sinema Saliba is back and will be better than ever!
