Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, Sam Borowski sold his first option in 1999 and attended the Cannes Film Festival. Borowski went on to produce six films - including two shorts - with another feature on the way. He directed and produced the much-anticipated feature film, "Night Club (2011)." Before that, Borowski wrote, produced and directed, "The Mandala Maker", a short for Academy- Award consideration in 2010 that got considerable Oscar buzz. The film went on to qualify for the Oscars. To date, it garnered seven award s over eight festivals, including three in the prestigious Accolade competition (for Direction, Short Film and Lead Actress). It also played in the prestigious Film Columbia Festival, in a block alongside 2010 Academy- Award Best Picture nominees, "Precious" and "Up In The Air." One of the features he produced, Rex (2008), experienced quite a bit of success on the festival circuit, winning numerous award s and honors. As the producer of Rex, Borowski was award ed the Audience Choice Award in both the SINY Film Festival in Staten Island, and the 25th Long Island Film Festival in 2008. In addition, Rex was nominated for Best Picture in both of those festivals, as well as several other award s. It also captured Breakout Performance for Acting (Robin Anne Phipps) in the Long Island Film Festival and Best Actress (Robin Anne Phipps) and Best Actor (Eric Rosenberg) honors in the 2008 Queens International Film Festival, and played in the 2009 Traildance Film Festival in Oklahoma. Interestingly enough, Borowski was responsible for casting Rex, and handpicked both Phipps and Rosenberg, who each won acting award s. He also selected all of the music, which included that of Empire City Motorcade, whom Associate Producer Eric Rosenberg lobbied hard for, and used his style and sensibility while sitting in editing every day as the Post-Production Supervisor. Borowski also served as a Second-Unit Director on Rex, directing several key scenes including the climactic and shocking ending. He previously wrote and produced the feature-length documentary, "Creature Feature: 50 Years of the Gill-Man", which features Academy- Award Winner Benicio Del Toro and is narrated by A-lister Keith David. The film, tells the story of the era surrounding the creation and distribution of the innovative horror film, Creature From the Black Lagoon, and its impact on the genre. He also produced, wrote and directed the feature film, Karloff and Me, about a modern-day thespian,attempting to make it later in life like his idol, Boris Karloff. It features the talents of Academy- Award Nominees Peter Bogdanovich and Gloria Stuart, among others. In addition, Borowski has also worked as a script doctor for both studios and independent film companies. He previously lived in London, England for three years, but resides once again in Staten Island, New York.
