Matt Shaw's filmmaking is centered in a process of looking and listening that engages conversation, research, and solitude. Working primarily with 16mm, his films share an interest in local history and the relationship between humans and other species. 

He received a BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic and a MFA in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His films have been shown worldwide and supported by LEF Foundation, Maine Arts Commission, Arteles Creative Center, the Anahata Foundation, and a Flaherty Film Seminar Fellowship.
