Matt Shaw's filmmaking is centered in a process of looking and listening. Through an interest in histories of place that recognize the relationship between humans and other species, his work engages research, conversation, and observation to read the landscape as archive.
He received his BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic and his MFA in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His films have been supported by LEF Foundation, Maine Arts Commission, Arteles Creative Center, and a Flaherty Film Seminar Fellowship. He is an Adjunct Faculty at College of the Atlantic and a bookseller at Blue Hill Books. After growing up in Poughkeepsie, New York he now lives on the coast of Maine.
